Ellsbury to play for Triple-A Pawtucket this weekend

BOSTON -- As colleague Gordon Edes reported earlier today, Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury will work out with the club tonight at Fenway and then play for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday and Sunday at McCoy Stadium.

Ellsbury played 87 games for the PawSox in 2007 and hit .298 with two homers, 28 RBIs and 33 stolen bases. He was recalled to Boston twice that season, making his major league debut on June 30, and later was a September call-up.

Coincidentally, the PawSox are holding Jacoby Ellsbury Bobblehead Doll Night at McCoy on Saturday.
