5:12 p.m.: Jacoby Ellsbury will be out of the Red Sox’ lineup for the second time in four games.
Ellsbury has been dealing with a hand issue that arose last weekend against the White Sox. However, according to The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham, it’s a foot injury that will keep Ellsbury out of Friday’s lineup.
Shane Victorino will shift over to center field and slide into the leadoff spot in Ellsbury’s absence. Jonny Gomes will play left field and bat second with a left-hander on the mound. It marks the 14th time this season that Gomes has batted second.
