Report: Jacoby Ellsbury to have MRI after playing with injured hand
|10.31.13 at 11:54 am ET|
Ellsbury’s hand was discolored and severely swollen up to the forearm, the report indicates, leading to surprise from teammates that he was still playing.
Despite the injury, Ellsbury went 2-for-4 in Wednesday night’s clincher, wearing a protective brace over the wrapped hand. He was 4-for-20 in the World Series prior to Game 6.
Ellsbury is set to become a free agent, and the Red Sox are expected to make him a one-year qualifying offer so that they will get compensation in the form of a draft pick if he signs elsewhere.
