Ellsbury out of Boston lineup with sore wrist

The SportsXchange

Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Oakland because of continued pain in his right wrist.

Manager Bobby Valentine said this was a logical time to give Ellsbury a rest since it was a day game following a night game.

"Yeah. Kind of a scheduled one," Valentine said, according to "His wrist has been barking at him a little. When we set off on the road trip, the training room was hoping that one of these days would work. See if we can't get it to feel a little better."

With Ellsbury out, Pedro Ciriaco got his first career start in the outfield. Ciriaco was in left field, and Scott Podsednik in center.

The Red Sox also called up infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket. He was one of the players acquired in the nine-player trade with the Dodgers.
