Ellsbury to play for Triple-A Pawtucket this weekend
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.
