CLEVELAND – Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who has played only nine games this season because of broken ribs, will be sidelined several more weeks.

Ellsbury, who broke four ribs in a collision with teammate Adrian Beltre on April 11, was examined Wednesday by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles, where a new injury to the area was discovered.

Ellsbury will receive therapy and will work out doing non-baseball-related activities in Arizona for a couple of weeks before the next course of action is decided.

A statement released by Yocum and the Red Sox medical director, Dr. Tom Gill, on Thursday said Ellsbury “will require several weeks of rest and physical therapy.”
