The trouble the Red Sox have in moving Jacoby Ellsbury

by Bill Chuck on December 5, 2012

Since 2008, there have been 63 players who have played at least 75% of their 500+ games in the outfield. The oft-injured, slow-to-recover, Jacoby Ellsbury is pretty far down the list.

Sulky is tied for 50th on the list with Dexter Fowler, another player whose team is trying to move him this offseason.
