Jacoby Ellsbury officially placed on disabled list with “subluxed” right shoulder

Apr 14, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

UPDATE: The Red Sox have officially placed Jacoby Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list with a subluxed right shoulder. As expected, Che-Hsuan Lin will replace him on the active roster.

11:02 AM: The Red Sox have yet to make an official announcement, but Jacoby Ellsbury just confirmed on his Twitter account that he has a subluxation (or separation) of his right shoulder.

Ellsbury is reportedly scheduled to undergo more tests to make sure he didn’t sustain any additional damage to the shoulder, but early estimates are that he’ll need to miss at least six weeks. Darnell McDonald, Cody Ross and Ryan Sweeney will start in the outfield for now while Che-Hsuan Lin is expected to be added to the roster before today’s game against the Rays.

    A subluxation can only occur through the severe stretching of ligaments. The current “hard work” that glassbury referenced in his tweet is all in his head. Complete distortion of the truth.

      I’m hoping that subluxation is confirmed to be all it is–that’d be a victory as far as how bad it looked. I also liked how, with your last sentenced, you characterized your own post.

      “A small amount of instability in shoulder ligaments can permit the shoulder to slip slightly out of its socket, which is called subluxation. A more severe case of instability can cause the shoulder to come completely out its socket and is known as a dislocation. ”
      So actually a subluxation is probably the BEST case scenario for Jacoby at this point

    Hope he will recover soon.
    btw, Lin is an awesome outfielder!!!!!

      Lin is a TERRIFIC fielding outfielder, I’ll give him that. However if the Sox could bat him 10th, they would…

    Since Lin was called up last night, this is hardly a surprise.

    Well, I sure hope Sweeney can carry his good start into May and Crawford gets back soon. Godspeed Jacoby.

    That means he can eat more fried chicken and drink more beer

      Wow Dan, nice one there. I mean, nobody here has had their fill of the fried chicken & beer jokes in reference to the Red Sox. If you are gonna go for the low hanging fruit, I would hope you would at least show some degree of intelligence and use that lame joke toward the PITCHING STAFF and not a position player. Nice try.

        It’s especially ironic since Ellsbury was pulling the David Wright Memorial MVP September While My Team Collapses Around Me move.

    Hope its not an all season long drama this time. We need him back soon. Their medical staff sucks so who knows….
