Ellsbury had two hits and two walks in five plate appearances Wednesday night in Boston's 6-2 win over the White Sox.
There's been some pressure on manager John Farrell to remove the slumping Ellsbury, who at one point Tuesday night was eight for his last 62 at-bats, from the leadoff spot. Since that point, Ellsbury has reached base six times in his last seven plate appearances. Farrell continues to consider a move, but if Ellsbury is snapping out of the slump, the manager will leave him right where he is.
