Shane Victorino, Jacoby Ellsbury banged up, but both expected to play Monday

Victorino re-aggravated a left hip contusion when he slid into first base in the fourth inning. He stayed in the game, but was clearly in pain during his next at bat in the sixth. After grounding out to third, he slammed his helmet on the ground and left the game after a brief conversation with Farrell and a trainer.
“When he aggravates it, it begins to kind of shut some things down on him,” Farrell said. “He doesn’t feel the explosiveness. So as a precaution, we got him out of there.”
Farrell took Ellsbury out before the start of the ninth due to some swelling in Ellsbury’s hand. Farrell said Ellsbury got jammed in a couple at bats, which aggravated the inside of his thumb.
“Jacoby’s got a little swelling in that hand. We felt like it might affect his throws, so we just got him off,” Farrell said.
Farrell said both Victorino and Ellsbury will be evaluated in the morning, but added that he doesn’t expect either to miss any time.
