Ellsbury out for tomorrow

KANSAS CITY ā€” Terry Francona said after the game tonight that Jacoby Ellsbury will not play tomorrow.

The Sox are obviously being very cautious with their center fielder after he was hit in the back with a pitch on Friday.

David Ortiz took 40 swings this afternoon, 20 off a tee and 20 soft-toss. He said he hopes to do that again tomorrow.

ā€œIā€™m feeling good, a lot better,ā€ he said.
