From leadoff last night to last for today’s tilt against the Yankees: Jacoby Ellsbury will bat ninth reports Gordon Edes.
Ellsbury is 0 for 16 since coming off the DL. I’m sure there’s some considerable rust there and, in the grand scheme of things, 16 at bats isn’t a lot. But given the hype and controversy that has surrounded Ellsbury’s injuries this year, you have to think that he’s dying to break out of the funk.
