Jacoby Ellsbury sets interesting MLB record
Jacoby Ellsbury has been viewed as a bust with the New York Yankees, but there is one thing he has excelled at.
Ellsbury set an MLB record on Monday night after reaching base via a catcher’s interference. The catcher’s interference against the Tampa Bay Rays was the 30th of his career, breaking Pete Rose’s previous record.
Making Ellsbury’s catcher’s interference even more valuable was the fact that Todd Frazier followed him with a homer to make it 5-1.
Ellsbury entered Monday batting .258/.340/.396 with 14 doubles, seven home runs and 17 stolen bases. He also entered Monday on a nine-game hitting streak and has been the team’s everyday center fielder since Aaron Hicks got hurt.
