The Boston Red Sox, who are in New York this weekend for a series against the Yankees, are without center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury at least one more day.
The team sent Ellsbury back to Boston for some tests on his injured right foot. Ellsbury is in a walking boot.
Ellsbury fouled a ball off his right foot Aug. 28. He was playing through it but was out of Friday's lineup. The Red Sox said Ellsbury is having an MRI and other tests taken.
The club called up Jackie Bradley Jr. from Class AAA Pawtucket and is starting in center field against the Yankees on Saturday. He is batting .155 with three doubles and two home runs in 66 plate appearances for Boston this season.
Ellsbury, 29, has a batting line of .299/.355/.424 with 31 doubles, eight triples, eight home runs, 52 RBI, 89 runs and a major-league-best 52 stolen bases this year.
