Jacoby Ellsbury Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is scheduled to have his ribs examined today in Boston and could be activated as soon as Tuesday he tells Pawtucket Red Sox radio play-by-play man Dan Hoard .

"I'm getting anxious," Ellsbury told Hoard. "It's fun when you're getting close, and I don't think I'm too far away."

In two games in Triple-A, Ellsbury is 4 for 9 with two runs. He hasn't played for the Red Sox since May 24. Ellsubury suffered four fractured ribs in a collision with Andre Beltre on April 11. Ellsbury said he's heard whispers that he's soft.

"Anybody that knows me -- my teammates, my coaches -- they know how hard that I play," Ellsbury said. "In the past I haven't missed many games and I play all-out. The naysayers don't really bother me at all -- the just motivate me more. Deep down, if you're comfortable with yourself, that is all that really matters."

Jacoby says he's not pain-free, but he's at a point where he can still play. That's good for the Red Sox, who had Eric Patterson starting in center field Sunday with rookie Ryan Kalish in left and a hobbled J.D. Drew in left.

The team is not that good?? Seriously.  There are six teams with 60 wins at this point, 3 of them are in the the AL East and one of them is the Red Sox.  They just started getting their guys back and will make a playoff run.  Even when the season is over and if they dont make the playoffs they'd still be one of the better teams in the MLB, ahead of any NL team besides maybe the braves.
