Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who suffered a subluxation of his right (non-throwing shoulder) last Friday, had his MRI exams read by noted California orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum and will not need immediate surgery, manager Bobby Valentine said Tuesday. -ESPNGood news is that surgery is not neccessary at the moment. Bad news is that he is still on a 4-8 week timetable.
While sliding into second base, Jacoby Ellsbury crashed into Rays' shortstop Reid Brignac, who then fell squarely on Ellsbury's right shoulder. He immediately grabbed for that shoulder, and was taken out of the game by the Red Sox immediately, replaced by Ryan Sweeney, with Cody Ross, who was in right field, moving over to center. - Over The Monster
