Jacoby Ellsbury Is In Tonight's Line-Up Vs. O's

Despite what at first appeared to be a nasty injury that forced him out of last night's game, Jacoby Ellsbury reported to Fenway Park this afternoon in good enough shape to start tonight's game against the Orioles. X-Rays (or as John Farrell called them "fluoroscopes") on his foot came back negative. Obviously, the Red Sox can ill-afford Ellsbury missing any substantial amount of time down the stretch. Ellsbury comes into tonight's game hitting .298 with seven HRs and 49 steals (which leads the majors).
