BALTIMORE -- Jacoby Ellsbury is making his second straight start in his return from a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his right foot, while Mike Napoli will start for the first time since Sept. 20 after a week in which he rested his foot on Friday against the Orioles. Shane Victorino, who seemed to struggle with his jammed right thumb in the late innings of Wednesday's game, has the night off.
