Ellsbury: Return 'worsened my condition'

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was placed back on the disabled list before Friday's game with the Royals and said he and the team were on the same page about coming back last weekend, but doing so worsened his sore ribs.

 

"Basically, I tried to played with a level of discomfort, knowing I wasn't 100 percent, and doing so worsened my condition," said Ellsbury, who said he saw a thoracic specialist on Friday who told him that he will need to be at a further level of healing when he returns to action. 

 

"I guess the way it looks now I came back too soon. With the way I felt and the way medical staff felt, we felt it was time to go. But we knew I wasn't fully healed." Ellsbury said.

Gammons on Big Show: Ellsbury 'very hurt'
By: DJ Bean

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons joined The Big Show on Friday, discussing Daisuke Matsuzaka, who he said is still a decent No. 5 starter, outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, and third baseman Adrian Beltre among other topics. 

 

“He is a mystery,” Gammons said of Matsuzaka.  “He’s like the human gyro-ball.”

 

On the subject of  Ellsbury, who was placed back on the 15-day disabled list Friday, and the nagging injury in his chest and side, Gammons said the outfielder is trying to play as much as he can because next season is his first opportunity to make big money in arbitration. 

 

“I think he’s very hurt,” Gammons said of Ellsbury, comparing his injury to a that of a hand or wrist. “Those things can take a year to come back from.” 

 

Gammons spoke of the impressive play of Beltre thus far. He noted...

Ellsbury on DL, Atchison called up

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who saw a thoracic specialist for an re-examination of his ribs on Friday morning, will be put back on the disabled list due to the recurrence of discomfort in the area where he suffered a hairline fracture of four ribs due to a collision with teammate Adrian Beltre on April 11. Francona said that there is not a new injury, but that the initial injury has simply healed more slowly than expected.

 

Ellsbury missed six weeks due to the initial injury before being activated on Saturday, but got in just three games before experiencing a re-aggravation of the condition in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. He has played in just nine games this year, hitting .250/.267/.341/.608.

 

With Ellsbury on the disabled list, the Sox recalled reliever Scott Atchison from Triple-A Pawtucket. Atchison has appeared in seven games this year for the Sox, recording a 6.10 ERA. Atchison...

Ainge on Big Show: Sheed uncertain for G6

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, in his interview on The Big Show on Friday afternoon, said that Glen "Big Baby" Davis will likely play in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Celtics and Magic on Friday, but he said that Rasheed Wallace will be a game-time decision and Marquis Daniels will not play. Davis and Daniels both suffered concussions in Game 5, while Wallace left the contest due to a back injury. In Daniels' place, Brian Scalabrine will suit up on Friday.

 

Ainge also said that he was unaware of any injury or health concerns related to point guard Rajon Rondo.

 

"He's fine," said Ainge. "I am not aware of any spasms or cramps."

 

Ainge, in addition to noting that he felt both of Kendrick Perkins' Game 5 technicals should have been rescinded, stressed the team's need to play improved defense. Rebounding was an issue...

Perkins: 'I might need to smile a few times'

A day after the NBA rescinded one of Kendrick Perkins technical fouls from Game 5, allowing him to play in Game 6, Perkins said he still has to play physical. The difference is, he may incorporate a new facial expression into his reportoire.

“I go out there and play my game,“ he said prior to Game 6 on Friday. “I can’t worry about if I’m going to get another tech. I cant play like that. I’ve got to go out there and do my job. If they want me to play physical, I’m going to play physical. I might need to smile a few times. That might help me. Ive got to go out there and play. I cant worry about nothing else.”

Perkins still has six technical fouls on his record in the postseason. He will face an automatic one-game suspension if he is called for his seventh.
