BOSTON (CBS) – Jacoby Ellsbury is heading to the disabled list.

The Boston Red Sox issued the following statement Saturday in regards to the injured outfielder:

“Jacoby injured his right shoulder during yesterday’s game. An MRI was performed and showed findings consistent with a subluxed shoulder. We are in the process of gathering further information and determining the treatment plan. Jacoby will be placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to today’s game.”

Ellsbury injured his shoulder during the team’s home opener on Friday after Tampa shortstop Reid Brignac came down hard on his right shoulder while turning a double play.

WBZ has learned Ellsbury is expected to be out a minimum of six weeks.

Ellsbury was the 2011 MVP runner-up after batting .321 with 32 homers and 105 RBI. He missed all but 18 games in the 2010 after suffering a rib injury in the first month of the season.
