Jacoby Ellsbury leaves game after foul ball hits right foot
Jacoby Ellsbury initially stayed in the game after a foul ball struck his foot. He even stole a base, but he was later removed from the game.
The timing of his removal was funny, because Ellsbury would initially stay in the game, gather an infield single, steal second base and then score from second on a single. That doesn't sound like the activity of a man with a foot injury, but he was removed before the eighth inning.
The game was tied at the time, too, so it's not like they had a big lead and were deciding to rest him.
At the end of the day, however, the likelihood of a serious injury seems relatively low, considering his wheels after the foul ball.
Ellsbury, 29, is hitting .298/.356/.421 with 29 doubles, eight triples, seven homers, 83 runs scored and 49 stolen bases in 53 attempts this season.
