Jacoby Ellsbury To Start In Center, Lead Off

Jacoby Ellsbury will be jumping right back into the thick of things tonight, getting the start in center field and leading off for the Red Sox in his first game back from the disabled list.

This will only be Ellsbury’s fifth start of the year in center after starting five games in left field earlier in the year, and likely signals a permanent return to the Red Sox’ leadoff spot. Marco Scutaro will move to the second spot in the lineup.
