News and notes from Fenway: Ellsbury’s ribs OK but sore

The MRIs and CT scan taken in Tampa Bay on Jacoby Ellsbury’s ribs were reviewed by the Sox medical team and indications are that Ellsbury did not suffer a new injury or re-injury to his ribs according to a team source. Ellsbury continues to have soreness in the ribcage area and was scheduled to meet with Dr. Thomas Gill this afternoon to go over the next course of action for treatment of the soreness.

The Sox may consider the disabled list if it’s decided that Ellsbury needs time to allow the soreness to go away. Ellsbury is not in today’s lineup.
