Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was sent back to Boston from the team's road trip Saturday to receive an MRI on his bothersome right foot.
Manager John Farrell revealed the news Saturday before the Red Sox's clash against the New York Yankees in the Bronx:
Farrell on status of Ellsbury: "He's been sent back to Boston to be examined. We're still going through more tests to get more information."— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) September 7, 2013
Ellsbury has been diagnosed with a non-displaced compression fracture in his foot and is expected to be back before the end of the regular season.
Ellsbury returned to the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 25.
