Long injured outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury will be activated from the disabled list tomorrow.
Ellsbury, suffering from five fractured ribs, has only played in nine games this season, and has been out since May 24. He has spent the last two weeks rehabbing between the Gulf Coast League, Double-A Portland, and Triple-A Pawtucket, hitting .406/.486/.469 between the three teams.
The Red Sox have yet to announce a counter move, but with Ryan Kalish performing well in his first few games at the major league level, will likely involve Eric Patterson, Darnell McDonald, or Daniel Nava. Given the organization's reluctance to remove players without options from the roster, Daniel Nava might be the obvious choice.
