Jacoby Ellsbury Scheduled to Play Against Northeastern Despite Battling Cold

Jacoby Ellsbury has been battling a slight bug the last couple of days, but a cold won’t prevent him from playing Saturday night against Northeastern at City of Palms Park in Fort Myers.

“I’ll be good to go,” Ellsbury told bench coach DeMarlo Hale.

Ellsbury is in the Red Sox’ lineup, batting leadoff and playing center field.
