“Jacoby injured his right shoulder during yesterday’s game. An MRI was performed and showed findings consistent with a subluxed shoulder.

Bobby Valentine said he has not heard the word “surgery” in the team’s discussions about Ellsbury.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox are probably not done with their roster juggling. The team will carry 13 pitchers today but it sounds like outfielder Jason Repko will be coming up on Sunday.

Repko, who has 355 games of major league experience, did not play for six days with Triple-A Pawtucket because of a minor injury. But he is in the lineup today in Rochester, playing center field.
