Ellsbury went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored at Fenway Park on Saturday.

Ellsbury had his best game since returning from a knee injury Wednesday. The leadoff man has shown no ill effects since rejoining the Yankees lineup, with four RBI and three runs in four games. A healthy Ellsbury should provide owners with plenty of runs and steals, and his recent production is a better indicator of his true skill than his six RBI in 36 games pre-injury were. The 153-million-dollar man will have one more game at his old home park before he gets to rest his knee over the All-Star break.

Ellsbury (knee) went 0-for-3 in his return to the High-A Tampa lineup Saturday.

Ellsbury had missed three of the previous five scheduled rehab games due to fatigue in his legs, so even though it wasn't a productive night at the plate, it's at least encouraging that he was back in the lineup. Manager Joe Girardi has not given an exact return date, but the hope is still that Ellsbury will be able to return before the All Star break.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi did not provide a timetable to reporters when asked about Ellsbury's (knee) potential return, Sweeny Murti of WFAN reports.

Given that Ellsbury has been limited in his rehab game workload this week in Tampa, there is seemingly a growing possibility that he'll be on the shelf until after the All-Star break. Chris Young will continue to see extended time in the Yankees' outfield in Ellsbury's absence.

Ellsbury (knee) was scratched from Thursday's lineup at High-A Tampa, the NY Post reports.

Ellsbury was removed from the lineup Tuesday as well, citing general fatigue, but it's unclear what the set back was for Thursday's contest. General manager Brian Cashman indicated that he wasn't too concerned, but a return to the big league team on Friday now appears to be unlikely.

Ellsbury (knee) is back in the lineup for High-A Tampa on Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

After an 0-for-3 showing in his first game with Tampa on Monday, Ellsbury sat out Tuesday's game with fatigue in both of his legs. His rapid increase in activity prior to reporting to Tampa may have led t the fatigue, but regardless, Ellsbury will resume his assignment Wednesday and it would seem he at least has a chance to return before the end of the weekend or early next week.

Ellsbury was scratched from Tuesday's lineup at High-A Tampa due to fatigue in both legs, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Ellsbury began his rehab assignment Monday after ramping up physical activity, including on-field workouts over the weekend. The rapid increase in activity likely led to some fatigue following Monday's rehab debut, but that shouldn't be an issue moving forward as he works himself back into game shape.
