Boston Red Sox - Jacoby Ellsbury( Mark L. Baer, US PRESSWIRE / July 18, 2012 )
A shoulder injury limited Ellsbury to 74 games in 2012. He's only had one healthy season in the past three, but that 2011 season was quite productive (.321, 32 homers, 105 RBIs, 119 runs, 39 stolen bases).
Ellsbury rolled his ankle Sunday, so he won't head into the season completely healthy. But that's not considered a serious injury, and if the Red Sox have Ellsbury for a full season it will greatly impact their lineup and their defense.
