Jacoby Ellsbury Has A New Injury To Add To Oblique & Hip: Plantar Fasciitis

Former Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is not exactly earning his $21,142,857 this season. He missed almost all of Spring Training with an oblique injury, then hurt his hip while re-habbing from that. Now, his heel is hurting due to plantar fasciitis. You have to think The Bronx Embalmers are having second thoughts about the seven-year, $153 million contract they signed him to. It's in effect through the 2020 season—with a $21 million team option for 2021. We're guessing the $5 million buyout will come into to play on that puppy. To be fair, Ellsbury was the victim of the inept Red Sox medical team when he was here—having multiple rehabilitation stints de-railed by bad practices. In any event, he hasn't played one single game so far this year for The Evil Ones. Oh, well. Caveat Emptor!
