Jacoby Ellsbury Injury Update: Red Sox Outfielder Placed On 15-Day DL

Boston Red Sox Outfielder, Jacoby Ellsbury, suffered a shoulder subluxation in the fourth inning of Friday's game. The team has decided to place Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list.

The 28 year old is coming off the best season of his career – a year in which he was a serious MVP candidate in the American League. Ellsbury finished the season with 32 home runs, 105 runs batted in, 39 steals, 119 runs scored and a batting average of .321. His WAR of 9.4 was the highest of any player, with Matt Kemp placing second at 8.7.

Ellsbury has gotten off to a slow start in 2012, batting just .192, without a home run or a stolen base.
