Sizemometer Update: Red Sox center fielders can't hit, but at least Jacoby Ellsbury is slumping too

The Red Sox have used two different options in their attempt to replace Jacoby Ellsbury in center field, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Grady Sizemore.  Combined Bradley Jr. and Sizemore are batting just .195 this season while playing the position.  You can read more about the Sox center field issues and what they could've done differently in my Bleacher Report article Offseason Moves the Boston Red Sox Should Have Made Going into 2014.

The silver lining here for Boston fans is that Ellsbury has been struggling mightily in New York of late as well.  On May 3rd he was hitting .346.  But since then he's gone 7-55 (.127) to drop his season average down to .272.  Ellsbury also has just one stolen base in that time.
