Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell is sticking with OF Jacoby Ellsbury at leadoff even though he is 3-for-24 through seven games of the team's nine-game road trip. Farrell was considering dropping Ellsbury down, but OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) has been dealing with multiple injuries. Victorino is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 21. "We're sticking with (Ellsbury) to hopefully give him the opportunity to come out of the situation that he's in right now," Farrell said. "But I can say this: Whether he's hitting first or whether he's hitting somewhere else in the lineup, there are still things that we need to address, that he needs to address, and those are ongoing." Ellsbury has just three walks in his last nine games and hasn't homered in 162 at-bats, but Farrell doesn't think Ellsbury is swinging too hard.
Fantasy Tip: Be patient with Ellsbury during his slump, and if you have to, sit him on the bench until he comes through it. As Scott Lauber points out, Ellsbury's power was slow to develop during his MVP-caliber 2011 season, as well, so there is still plenty of time for him to get his timing down.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he is not concerned about OF Jacoby Ellsbury not trying to steal bases during spring training because he knows that Ellsbury knows how to steal bases. "I think he's a pretty adept base stealer. I don't think he's lost a knack to steal bases or get reads on certain pitchers," Farrell said. "I'm confident he still has basestealing capability."
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury has been a terrific base stealer when he has been healthy in his career and should be able to contribute in that category again this season for owners.
