The Red Sox have called up outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from Triple-A Pawtucket for tonight’s game against Texas. Ellsbury is in the lineup against the Rangers, will bat ninth, and will play center field.

To make room for Ellsbury, the Red Sox placed reliever Joel Pineiro on the 15-day disabled list with a sore ankle.

The 23-year-old Ellsbury will wear No. 46 in his major league debut. He combined to hit .323 with 29 stolen bases in 67 games at Double-A Portland and at Pawtucket this year.
