MLB notebook: Yankees' Ellsbury to have MRI

Pirates/MLB Videos

Thursday, March 20, 2014, 8:03 p.m.

Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was sent for an MRI Thursday of his ailing right calf.

Ellsbury hasn't played since March 14. He was scratched from Sunday's game against Atlanta because of right calf tightness.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he did not have a specific number of days planned for Ellsbury to rest.

Ellsbury agreed to a $153 million, seven-year contract in December.

• Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy will have ligament-replacement surgery in his right elbow for the second time Friday and is expected to miss the entire season.
