ELLS­BURY HAS HEEL PAIN IN AD­DI­TION TO HIP IN­JURY

The Day - - SPORTS -

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.
