Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has been diagnosed with a compression fracture in his right foot, MLB.com’s Ian Browne reports. The Red Sox expect to Ellsbury to return from the injury and play.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Ellsbury aggravated his right foot while attempting a steal a base in the 10th inning of the Red Sox game against the New York Yankees. Ellsbury fouled a ball off his foot last week against the Baltimore Orioles and Farrell says the injury has been nagging Ellsbury ever since.

Ellsbury is batting .299 with eight homers, 52 RBIs and 89 runs. Ellsbury has swiped a Major League leading 52 bases in 56 attempts this season.

If you look up "fragile" in the dictionary there is a picture of Ellsbury. Yet some fool team will give him $80-100 million this off season. I hope it is not the Red Sox.

I wouldnt got that far, but you are close.

Good player that is always hurt. He reminds me of Jose Reyes in ways.

If the Sox give this guy any money they are stupid. At most he is a 3 year player (probably get 1 and a half seasons out of him over that time.)
