Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a double in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury snapped a 1-for-13 skid with the three-hit effort, and also collected his first extra base hit since July 10. All three parts of his .269/.332/.376 slash line mark an improvement over last season's disappointing campaign.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury will get a day off as the team faces Madison Bumgarner in the opening game of the series in the Bronx. The 32-year-old has started every game since the All-Star break ended, but will be replaced by Aaron Hicks in center for Friday's matchup.

Ellsbury reached on a catcher's interference for the ninth time this season, setting an obscure major league record on what was an otherwise pedestrian 1-for-2 with an RBI and a steal night.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury's remarkable nine catcher's interferences in a single season sets a new major league record with 9, and he's done it with almost half the season left to play. The play gives Ellsbury 23 catcher's interferences for his career, the most of any active player. The major league record of 29 career is held by Pete Rose and looks in striking distance for the 32-year-old Ellsbury

Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a walk, two runs scored, three RBI and his fourth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

He's been alternating good months with quiet ones so far this season, and the pattern is holding true as Ellsbury is slashing .333/.381/.436 through the first nine games of July with five multi-hit performances. Hopefully the All-Star break won't slow his momentum.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees will get as many right-handed bats into the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against lefty Carlos Rodon and the White Sox, meaning that Ellsbury will get the day off. Aaron Hicks will take Ellsbury's place in center field and bat ninth in the order TUesday.

Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

New York's offense failed to get anything going against starter Cole Hamels, but they at least managed to avoid a shutout thanks in large part to Ellsbury's success against reliever Jake Diekman. The former Red Sox outfielder is surely envious of his old team's current lineup, as he has scored just 32 runs as the regular leadoff man for a subpar Yankees offense.
