Jacoby Ellsbury is back in the No. 2 spot with J.D. Drew getting the weekend off. Drew said he “completely” expects to be back in the lineup Tuesday, after the Red Sox have a day off tomorrow. Drew said the AC joint in his left shoulder has been nagging him ever since spring training, and in recent days it became so sore he had to grit through batting practice and had trouble lifting his glove to catch fly balls.
