Red Sox | Jacoby Ellsbury runs wild

Boston Red Sox OF Jacoby Ellsbury stole a team-record five bases in the win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, May 30. Five stolen bases in a single game has been done only 20 times in major league history since 1916, and Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford was the last to do so, stealing six in 2009.

Fantasy Tip: We'll never see a recurrence of his 32-homer season in 2011, but a return to 50 thefts is entirely possible if he can stay healthy. If you're leading your league in steals by a hefty margin, Ellsbury could become a monumental trade chip that could land you some nice pieces. On the other hand, hanging onto him won't hurt, either.
