Jacoby Ellsbury Misses Yankees Batting Practice To Have MRI On Calf

New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury underwent a precautionary MRI on his calf after skipping a scheduled batting practice session Thursday, MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reported.

Luckily for the Yankees, the test came back negative.

Even though this issue seems minor, durability has been a concern with Ellsbury for most of his major league career. The 30-year-old has missed 290 total games over the last six seasons. He missed 28 regular-season games for the Boston Red Sox in 2013.

Ellsbury joined the Yankees in December on a seven-year, $153 million contract after spending six-plus seasons in Boston.
