Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a double in Tuesday's win over the Astros.
Ellsbury snapped a 1-for-13 skid with the three-hit effort, and also collected his first extra base hit since July 10. All three parts of his .269/.332/.376 slash line mark an improvement over last season's disappointing campaign.
Sanchez continues to accumulate frequent flyer miles, as this is his third promotion this month. This promotion coincides with Brett Lawrie's placement on the disabled list, so there should be an opportunity for Sanchez to play behind Tyler Saladino at second. The official transaction announcement should precede Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
The White Sox have been without Lawrie for five days, and manager Robin Ventura said the club did not want a short bench as they head into a National League series against the Cubs. Lawrie would be eligible to return the first weekend of August, and the injury will likely preclude him from being involved in any non-waiver trades. Carlos Sanchez will replace him on the roster, and Sanchez and Saladino should replace him at second.
Ross was the pitcher of record in Tuesday night's 9-8 loss to the Tigers. He allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one in a two-inning, 40-pitch relief outing.
Ross initially performed well when called on in the fifth inning to replace struggling starter Steven Wright, but began to weaken as his pitch count rose, and Boston manager John Farrell tried to squeeze out one more batter. After retiring the first two batters in the seventh, Ross loaded the bases on a hit batsman, a single and a walk, and then walked in the winning run.
Young (hamstring) has been hitting in the cage, but still isn't at the point where he can run a full sprint, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports.
Boston manager John Farrell described Young's progress as "gradual" since he strained his right hamstring a little more than a month ago. Young will join the Red Sox on the team Thursday when it begins an 11-game road trip through Anaheim, Seattle and Los Angeles.
