Ellsbury moved to 60-day disabled list
On Wednesday, May 2, New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was transferred from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. The former Madras baseball star is not close to returning and has yet to return to baseball activities.
Ellsbury was put on the disabled list with an oblique injury in late March, and then suffered a hip injury in early April, which has been an ongoing problem. Ellsbury has also been dealing with a foot injury on top of his hip and oblique injuries.
He was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in mid-April.
ESPN staff writer Coley Harvey reported: "He's had it at times in the past," general manager Boone said of the heel injury. "Look, I don't think it's a serious issue, but it is something that popped up along the way with his hip stuff."
"He's just has to get right and be able to start back on baseball activities, and then getting into and playing in games and coming out and getting through that," Boone said. "When that is, I'd be guessing right now."
Jacoby is still trying to become healthy, so he can play in his first regular season game of 2018. Ellsbury has yet to see the field and continues to be plagued with injuries. He will remain in physical therapy, until healthy.
