NEW YORK -- New York Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury exited Wednesday's game against the Kansas City Royals with a concussion and a sprained neck after crashing into the wall in the top of the first inning.
Ellsbury tracked down a fly ball by Alcides Escobar and hit the wall while making the catch. The right side of Ellsbury's face hit the wall as he fell down and stayed down for a minute or two.
Ellsbury is batting .281 with four home runs and 14 RBIs. On May 1, he crashed into the wall while making a catch on Toronto infielder Ryan Goins and was held out of the starting lineup for three games with a bruised nerve in his left elbow.
