Jacoby Ellsbury is coming back tonight

Aug 4, 2010, 12:20 PM EDT

At long last, Jacoby Ellsbury is expected to be activated from the disabled list for tonight’s game against the Indians.

Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI as the designated hitter in his final rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. In three rehab games with the PawSox, the speedy center fielder was 7-for-14 (.500).

Certain members of the media will probably be shocked to learn this, but
according to what Ellsbury told Mike Scandura of the Boston Globe, he is chomping at the bit to get back on the field.

“I’m happy, I’m excited about [getting activated],” he said. “I’m fired up. You know I’m ready.”

Ellsbury has been limited to nine of the team’s 107 games this season due to complications with fractured ribs. While his long-awaited return will certainly help, the clock is quickly running out for their full squad to actually take the field all at once.
