Update: Jacoby Ellsbury leaves game with right hip tightness


1:15am: Joe Girardi said it’s a minor issue and they expect Ellsbury to play in Friday’s game.

12:42am: Ellsbury left the game with right hip tightness, the team announced. He was not in Monday’s lineup because the hip was bothering him, but the game was rained out.

10:06am: Jacoby Ellsbury left tonight’s game for an unknown reason in the middle of the seventh inning. Replays showed him talking to Joe Girardi and trainer Steve Donahue between innings. Ellsbury crashed into the wall making a catch earlier in the game, and Wally Matthews notes he had an ice pack on his left knee following yesterday’s game. Hopefully it’s nothing serious. Losing him for any length of time would be rather devastating.

    Let’s try KJ in outfield. Gardy and Ichiro can’t do it all themselves.

      He was an outfielder for most of his Braves career.

      And it’s not as though it could be worse than First Baseman Kelly Johnson.

        Future HOF Manager Kelly Johnson laughs at your disapproval.

    Medivac him to Oakland. Wheel him on and off the field on a hand truck. Only movement allowed is game related. That is all.

    Didn’t someone post “Ready for three more losses?” before this series started? Maybe he was talking about the Oakland series? Nice to have some momentum heading into the series against the AL’s best team. Toronto has come back to reality a little as well.

    This happened back in KC on 6/8/14 when he doubled to center. He sort of tweaked it and when he got to third he was hurting and shaking out his leg and stretching and grimacing. So the bad news is it didn’t go away in that time but the good news is he was still productive with it.
