Free-agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Ellsbury is the second major free-agent addition in the Yankees' offseason rebuilding after missing the playoffs for just the second time in 19 years, joining catcher Brian McCann. The centerfielder was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday that he must pass before the deal can be finalized, the source said.

Arizona Diamondbacks lefthander Patrick Corbin has a partially torn ligament in his left elbow that may require season-ending surgery. Corbin said Sunday that he has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament and was getting a second opinion with noted surgeon James Andrews before deciding whether to try to rehab or have surgery. Corbin had been designated the team's opening day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia, but left Saturday's game against Cleveland in the seventh inning with forearm stiffness.

Why players like Terry Francona Boston manager Terry Francona rarely rips into a player in public, ala, say, Lou Piniella. And he gives his stars big-time respect when it comes to working out problems. David Ortiz, off to a horrible start for the second straight spring, struck out twice against Minnesota on Wednesday before doubling in the ninth. He walked in the third but ended the inning when he was caught trying to steal second. And this season the once-feared slugger is hitting .154.

The Yankees likely will pull out of trade talks for Johan Santana if the Twins don't make a decision by late today. "I'm not going to be played against the Red Sox. That's not something I'll do. That's not something the Yankees should ever do, and that's I think what they're trying to do now," Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said yesterday in Nashville, Tenn., site of the winter meetings. The Yankees have proposed swapping pitcher Phil Hughes, centerfielder Melky Cabrera and a midlevel prospect for the two-time Cy Young Award winner, who can become a free agent after next season.

Albert Pujols' first week as the Los Angeles Angels' cleanup hitter did not go as well as expected for a slugger with a $240 million contract. At the end of Friday's game against the New York Yankees in their home opener, Pujols was hitting .222 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored in 27 at-bats. But he's not worried. "I'm a human," he told the Associated Press. "Sometimes you want to press a little bit and try to do too much. " Fans in Anaheim, Calif., may be the ones who are worried as they've seen their team - which is expected to compete with the Texas Rangers for the AL West - get off to a 2-5 start.

BY ALL appearances, according to a Red Sox team source, it remained business as usual in Fenway Park as of yesterday afternoon. The general manager, Theo Epstein, was in his office, and his staff of assistants, including GM-in-waiting Ben Cherington, remained engaged in their normal duties. So far, according to the source, Epstein has yet to inform most of his staff whether he is headed to the Chicago Cubs to take over their baseball operations, despite widespread reports that he has accepted a 5-year deal to relocate.

The Boston Red Sox have no idea how long Tim Wakefield will pitch. He might just go on forever. "As long as Wake wants to keep working the way he does, I don't see any reason for this to stop," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "He'll be done when he wants to be done, I guess. " The 44-year-old held the Detroit Tigers to two runs on five hits in seven innings yesterday, as the Red Sox picked up their 12th win in 14 games, winning, 6-3. "I'm just doing what I've always done - trying to help my team win games," said Wakefield, who picked up his 195th career win. He's been with the Red Sox since 1995, picking up a pair of World Series rings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Boston Red Sox will be back at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night for another interleague series that the Phillies always deem special enough to sell as a separate ticket package. Late last June when the Red Sox came to town, the games were billed by many as a World Series preview: Boston's high-powered offense against the Phillies' star-studded starting rotation. At the time, the Phillies had the best record in baseball, and the Red Sox had recovered from a 2-10 start to move within a half-game of the New York Yankees in the American League East.

After three weeks of inconsistent play and clubhouse controversy, it finally took an injury to centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to spur Boston's front office to action. Outfielder Marlon Byrd told ESPN on Saturday evening that he has been traded from the Chicago Cubs to Boston. With leftfielder Carl Crawford (wrist/elbow) and Ellsbury (shoulder) on the disabled list, the Red Sox are stunningly weak in the outfield. (If you watched Saturday's game against the Yankees, you saw that they are very thin in the bullpen, too)
