The Red Sox are facing some early season injury woes as Jacoby Ellsbury has missed seven straight games with bruised ribs, and there is no certainty on when he will be available.
Also ailing for the Red Sox is Mike Cameron who passed a kidney stone earlier this week and is not still in a lot of pain. He was not in the line-up today against the Rays, and is uncertain for their next game.
Cameron had this to say:
“I’ve been knocked out.” “And this was worse than that. I’ve never been shot, but if getting shot is worse than this, I hope I never get shot.”
The Sox just wrapped up a three-game series with the Rays in which they were swept. They are 4-8 to start the year.
