Terry Francona said after the game tonight that Jacoby Ellsbury will join the Red Sox in Philadelphia and “probably” be activated on Saturday.
Ellsbury played in three minor-league games, going 4 for 10 with two walks and a stolen base. He has been out since cracking four ribs in Kansas City on April 11.
Mike Cameron will play for Class AA Portland again tomorrow and then he re-evaluated. He has played in six minor-league games, going 5 for 18 with four RBI, four walks and five strikeouts. He is on the disabled list with an abdominal tear.
