Jacoby Ellsbury Plays Six Innings In Gulf Coast League Game

Important News!: Jacoby Ellsbury played a baseball game!

Granted, not for the Red Sox, but still: progress!

Ellsbury, who has started the process of rejoining the big-league club, played six innings Tuesday for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox and finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base.

First inning: Walked, stole second, went to third on an error and scored on sacrifice fly

Second inning: 4-6-3 double play

Fifth inning: Line drive single to right field

This comes a day after he was the designated hitter in a rehab game on Monday, going 1-for-3 (his first game at any level since May 24).

There is still no exact timetable for Ellsbury, but Gordon Edes says that the outfielder "could be back with the Red Sox by next week."
