September 06, 2013 - 11:27 am

NEW YORK -- Jacoby Ellsbury is out for the second time in four games, less than a week removed from hurting his hand on a couple of jam shots on Sunday. Red Sox manager John Farrell had suggested that the situation was one that the Sox anticipated having to manage going forward, and this would appear to be further evidence of the notion. With Ellsbury out, Shane Victorino will play center while Jonny Gomes is in left and Daniel Nava in right. David Ross is back in the lineup against Yankees lefty Andy Pettitte, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia sitting for the fourth straight day. For complete batter vs. starting pitcher histories, click here.
