Jacoby Ellsbury saw game action this afternoon for the first time since May 24, beginning a minor-league rehab assignment by going 1-for-3 as the designated hitter for the Red Sox’s rookie-level Gulf Coast League team.
Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that Ellsbury is expected to play a couple more games in the GCL before joining Triple-A Pawtucket for the remainder of his rehab stint. Barring a setback, he’s allowed to rehab in the minors for a total of 20 days.
