FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was sent for an MRI Thursday of his ailing right calf.
Ellsbury hasn't played since March 14. He was scratched from Sunday's game against Atlanta because of right calf tightness.
Speaking before Thursday night's game against Boston, Yankees manager Joe Girardi says ''I'm sure he'll take BP tomorrow.''
Girardi said he hoped Ellsbury would play this weekend or by Tuesday.
Ellsbury agreed to a $153 million, seven-year contract in December after helping the Red Sox win a pair of World Series titles during seven seasons in Boston.
