Jacoby Ellsbury Injury Update: Boston Red Sox Star Takes Batting Practice Thursday

Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury took batting practice on Thursday as he continues rehabilitation from a subluxation of his right shoulder.

According to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe, Ellsbury took batting practice for six minutes and "looked to be swinging with full effort."

The 28-year old has not played since April 13, when he tried to break up a double-play attempt at second base and collided with Rays' second baseman Reid Brignac. ESPN reported Wednesday that a minor league rehab assignment should come "sooner rather than later" if Ellsbury's progression continues at its current pace.

Last season, Ellsbury finished second behind Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander in American League MVP voting after batting .321 with 32 home runs, 105 RBI and 39 stolen bases.
