The Boston Red Sox have activated center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

To make room on their roster for Ellsbury, the Red Sox have designated right-hander Justin Germano for assignment.

Ellsbury has only played in seven games for the Red Sox this season, collecting five hits in 26 at-bats before hitting the DL with a shoulder injury.

Prior to his activation, Ellsbury spent eight games rehabbing in the minors. The 28-year-old played Rookie ball for four games before spending two apiece with the Red Sox Double- and Triple-A affiliates. Over his 27 at-bats, Ellsbury tallied five hits, including two doubles and a home run.

Germano only appeared in one game with the Red Sox this season, holding the New York Yankees scoreless on five hits over his 5 2/3 innings pitched last Saturday. The 29-year-old has spent much of the season with Boston’s Triple-A affiliate, where he’s posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.40 and 0.905 over his 17 appearances, including 16 starts.
