Boston Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron may be staying in Portland for the rest of the week, while teammate Jacoby Ellsbury is not sure if his rehab assignment is over.
Cameron, recovering from an abdominal tear, went 1-for-4 Thursday in the Sea Dogs' 6-2 loss to New Britain at Hadlock Field. He said he will play for Portland in Friday's 6 p.m. game, then maybe take a day off and play again on Sunday.
Ellsbury, recovering from four fractured ribs, made his second rehab appearance Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a stolen base. He said he will confer with Red Sox manager Terry Francona and the front office about his next step.
The Sea Dogs play the Yankees-affiliated Trenton Thunder Friday. There are fireworks after the game. About 1,000 tickets remain.Tweet
