Jacoby Ellsbury Out of Red Sox Lineup for Second Straight Night on Saturday Against Yankees


The Red Sox did not fare too well without Jacoby Ellsbury on Friday night, and they will be without their leadoff hitter again on Saturday night.

Ellsbury is out for the second straight night with soreness in his groin. He suffered the injury on Thursday night on his record-setting fifth stolen base. Daniel Nava will take his spot in the lineup once again, while Jackie Bradley Jr. will play center field and bat ninth.

The Yankees will send out the exact same lineup they used Friday night when they beat the Red Sox 4-1. It helps that the Red Sox are sending out lefties two days in a row.

Dustin Pedroia, 2B
