Scott Boras the agent for Jacoby Ellsbury said today he expects the Red Sox center fielder to be back for the postseason likely earlier.
According to Boras the biggest issue for Ellsbury is the swelling in his right foot and not the small fracture on the surface of the navicular bone. The swelling is affecting the movement of a tendon coming from the tibia.
Once the swelling has gone down Ellsbury will be able to start swinging a bat and proceed from there.
"The Red Sox' interests and our interests are the same in this we clearly want Jacoby to be back for the postseason and we're all on the same page to make sure he's available" Boras said.
Boras described the navicular bone as having three layers. Ellsbury has what he said was a "very minute" fracture running east and west on the top surface of the bone. When Dustin Pedroia fractured the same bone in 2010 he had a fracture that ran north and south through all three layers of the bone.

With the Boston Red Sox playing extremely well during the month of September and riding high with a seven and a half game American League East lead, the team may have to be without leadoff hitter and centerfield Jacoby Ellsbury for the next few weeks due to a non-displacement compression fracture of right foot. Ellsbury originally injured his foot after fouling a ball a few weeks...

We Wont See This For A WhileAs many suspected, Jacoby Ellsbury does indeed have a fractured right foot. Technically, it's a "compression fracture of the navicular bone". The bottom line is the Red Sox have no clue when he'll return. Despite the optimistic prognostications of manager John Farrell, it all depends on how quick a healer Ellsbury is. The "non...
Jacoby Ellsbury after fouling a pitch off his foot.
You might not of even noticed his absence the way the Red Sox are playing and scoring runs, but Jacoby Ellsbury is missing.
Missing from the lineup. Missing from the field. Maybe, even missing for good.
Now, of course, that is the worst case scenario for the situation triggered by my pessimism, but anytime Ellsbury goes down, you...

If the Red Sox are to win the World Series, they may very
well have to do so without Jacoby Ellsbury.

Farrell announced that Ellsbury has a compression...
Essential To October SuccessThe Red Sox will pull off a "double-switch" today in Tampa. No, they have not been moved to the National League by Bud Selig. But they will switch out Clay Buchholz for Jacoby Ellsbury on the field. Buchholz will start his first game since just after the Bruins eliminated the Penguins, and Ellsbury is still in his walking boot with a non-displaced...
Don’t close the book on Jacoby Ellsbury‘s season.
Ellsbury received a second opinion on his injured right foot, and it confirmed that he has a non-displaced compression fracture of the navicular bone.

The Boston Red Sox have received the results of a second opinion that they requested on center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury's foot. Ellsbury has a compression fracture in his right foot, and, according to MLB.com's Jason Mastrodonato, that is exactly what the Red Sox expected to hear.
The Red Sox released the following statement about Ellsbury's next steps:
The Red Sox want and expect Jacoby Ellsbury to return before the season ends. It sounds as if Ellsbury’s agent wants the same thing.
That seems simple enough, but the obvious point of potential complication comes from the fact that Ellsbury’s agent is Scott Boras. Not one known for taking teams’ best interests into mind, it wouldn’t be too shocking if we eventually found...
Jacoby Ellsbury went a long way toward silencing any skepticism about his toughness by playing in seven games between the time he fouled a ball off his right foot on Aug. 28 and the time he was diagnosed with a compression fracture of the navicular bone. But by playing in those games, did Ellsbury actually make matters worse?
According to the Boston Herald’s Scott...
Jacoby Ellsbury, the Red Sox leadoff man, Gold Glove-caliber center fielder and MLB's stolen base leader, will be out awhile -- possibly the rest of the season. Ellsbury has a compression fracture in his right foot. Monday, Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Ellsbury should be back before the end of the regular season.

Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has a broken right
foot, leaving the AL East leaders without a key offensive catalyst
as they try to wrap up the division title.
Welcome to this week’s edition of the “Fab Five,” our look at the best five teams in baseball and where they stand with only a few weeks remaining in the 2013 regular-season. Surprisingly, only the National League Central winner has yet to be decided, despite the fact that
Five months ago Jackie Bradley Jr. was touted as the second coming of Willie Mays.
Turns out the Red Sox only need him to be as good as Jacoby Ellsbury.
It’s a request that’s every bit as unfair as the hype that followed Bradley out of spring training. Ellsbury has been among the Sox’ most consistent hitters especially since late May. The center fielder is the top-of-the...
When the Rangers lost Nelson Cruz to a 50-game suspension, they were expected to slide a bit in the standings, but that hasn't been the case. They have played good baseball and are sitting two games back in their division. While they have been good offensively, they still plan to at least try to upgrade their offense and are showing interest in two players.
The Rangers have...
