Injured Boston Red Sox outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford are on the mend. Both of them played in a Gulf Coast League game on Friday (via Boston Herald).
Ellsbury was 1-4 with a walk and an RBI while Crawford was 0-2 with two walks. Ellsbury was the designated hitter in the lineup as he is trying to work his way back from a partially dislocated right shoulder which he injured on April 13. Crawford played seven innings in left field. Crawford is recovering from a sprained ligament in his left elbow.
Ellsbury was hitting .192 with three RBI and four walks in seven games this season before the injury occurred. Crawford has not played at all for Boston this season. He had wrist surgery during the offseason and was expected back at the beginning of the season before the elbow sidelined him in late April.
