Francona juggles options for center field

ARLINGTON -- The Red Sox will use a rotation of Eric Patterson, Darnell McDonald and even Ryan Kalish in center field with Jacoby Ellsbury going on the disabled list Saturday.

Patterson was in center field for Saturday's game at Texas.

Right-handed-hitting McDonald would seem to be the likely starter in center for Sunday's game with the Rangers starting left-hander C.J. Wilson (both Patterson and Kalish bat left-handed).

"It depends on who's available," manager Terry Francona said. "We'll see."
