Red Sox Outfielder Ellsbury Has Foot Fracture, Should Return

Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox has been diagnosed with a compression fracture in his right foot, though manager John Farrell said he expects the center fielder to be able to return to action before the postseason.

Ellsbury, whose 52 stolen bases are the most in Major League Baseball, was injured when he fouled a fall off his foot on Aug. 28 and played for more than a week before being shut down two days ago. He met a specialist in Denver yesterday for a second opinion on the injury and Farrell said Ellsbury’s foot will remain in a walking boot for the time being.

The Red Sox, who have the best record in the majors at 87-58 and lead the American League East division by 7 1/2 games, have 17 regular-season games remaining.

“We feel like he’ll be back to us before this year is out,” Farrell was cited as saying by “We’re hopeful in the regular season, yes.”

Ellsbury, 29, is hitting .299 with eight home runs, 52 runs batted in and 89 runs scored this season.
