Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said that the team believes that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury will be able to recover from his right shoulder subluxation through a program of rest and rehabilitation. To this point, the Sox do not expect that he will need surgery that would likely prove season-ending.
"At this point I believe he can recover from this without surgery, but we're still gathering information," Cherington said.
Ellsbury suffered the injury on Friday when Rays shortstop Reid Brignac landed on the center fielder's right shoulder after his legs were taken out on a double play pivot.
