Ellsbury Returns From DL

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox have activated
center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list and inserted
him into their starting lineup.

Ellsbury was the leadoff hitter for Friday night’s game against
Tampa Bay. He has been out since hurting his right shoulder on
April 13 while trying to break up a double play.

Boston manager Bobby Valentine says he doesn’t have a long-term
plan for Ellsbury and will take it day by day.

Ellsbury was the runner-up in the AL MVP voting last season and
Boston has sorely missed him in the lineup.

To make room on the roster for Ellsbury, pitcher Justin Germano
was designated for assignment.
