The Boston Red Sox were without Jacoby Ellsbury on Friday night, who was having pain in his right foot that he fouled a ball off of during the team's last home stand. As reported by Ian Browne of MLB.com, the Red Sox believe there is no significant damage to Ellsbury's foot.  Manager John Farrell said no follow-up X-rays or MRI's were taken. Shane Victorino took over center field and the lead off spot in Ellsbury's absence. Jonny Gomes played left and batted second, while Daniel Nava started in right. Farrell said that although Ellsbury was out of last night's lineup, he is hopeful that Ellsbury will be in tonight's lineup.  "Last night in that final stolen base, he aggravated that right foot," said manager John Farrell. "Throughout the night, he had increased pain, some throbbing. It was there again today. So he's off his feet. He'll get treatment throughout the course of the game tonight." Ellsbury played in only 74 games last season and batted .271 with 4 home runs and 26 runs batted in. This season, he is batting .299 with 8 home runs, 52 rbi's and 52 stolen bases. He is a career .297 hitter with 64 home runs, 313 rbi's and 241 stolen bases.
