Red Sox | Jacoby Ellsbury has strained groin

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Jacoby Ellsbury (groin) suffered a strained left side of his groin while stealing his fifth base of the game Thursday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is hoping to return to the lineup Saturday, but groin strains can be pretty painful and tough to come back from quickly, especially since a large part of Ellsbury's game depends on his speed. Monitor this situation, but it's possible he could land on the DL. If that happens, Jackie Bradley will move from a bench role to every day duties and is would be worth adding in mixed leagues in the short term.
