Report: Jacoby Ellsbury to have MRI after playing with injured hand
|10.31.13 at 11:54 am ET|
According to a report from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury will have an MRI on his left hand after playing through the injury in the postseason.
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.
