MLB Injury News:
It was reported a few hours ago that Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury "may miss significant time" with a right foot injury. The severity of the injury wasn't known, but from the comments made by the media and Red Sox organization, the injury sounded serious. There is a report now that Ellsbury's injury may in fact be serious.
Jacoby Ellsbury may have a fracture in his foot, according to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston. Ellsbury for now is out indefinitely and he will visit doctors in Denver for further evaluation on his foot.
If Ellsbury does indeed have a fractured foot, his career in Boston may be over. With him scheduled to hit free agency at years end, there is no guarantee that he will return this season if he does in fact have a fractured foot.
This injury would be a crushing blow to the Red Sox and their playoff hopes. Ellsbury was having a great year for the Sox and losing him for a long period of time would be a devastating blow to the team. On the year, Ellsbury is hitting .299 with eight home runs and 52 RBI's. If Ellsbury does have a fractured foot, his time with the Red Sox may be over.
