ELLSBURY HAS HEEL PAIN IN ADDITION TO HIP INJURY
Jacoby Ellsbury's latest ailment is plantar fasciitis, preventing the New York Yankees outfielder from fully resuming baseball activities.
The 34-year-old center fielder has been on the disabled list since the start of the season. He did not play in any exhibition games from March 1-24 because of an oblique injury and finished spring training 1-for-14.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone disclosed April 3 that Ellsbury had injured a hip during his rehabilitation, and Ellsbury received a cortisone injection on April 10. New York had hoped he would resume baseball activities last Friday, but Boone said Monday the heel pain had caused another setback.
