Heading back to Boston to have his sore left side and back looked at,
Aug 14 Updating a previous report, Ellsbury (ribs) will head to Boston, instead of Los Angeles, to undergo an MRI, the Boston Globe reports.
Recommendation: Ellsbury left Friday night's game after colliding with Texas pitcher Tommy Hunter and re-injured his left side and back, the same areas that caused him to miss most of this season. "It's very concerning," said manager Terry Francona. "The exam that [trainer Mike Reinold] gave him is very concerning. We'll get him looked at as quickly as we can so we can try to make a decision going forward."
