Jacoby Ellsbury placed on 15-day DL

As expected, the Boston Red Sox placed center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list due to his subluxed shoulder.

"Jacoby injured his right shoulder during yesterday’s game," per a team statement (via Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe). "An MRI was performed and showed findings consistent with a subluxed shoulder. We are in the process of gathering further information and determining the treatment plan. Jacoby will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to today’s game."

The team is expected to call up Jason Repko from Pawtucket to take Ellsbury's roster spot.

Through seven games, Ellsbury was hitting .192 with no home runs and no stolen bases.  He has four runs scored and three runs batted in.
