Jacoby Ellsbury CF NYY 3 days ago

Ellsbury (knee) will go on the 15-day DL, YES Network's Jack Curry reports.

Ellsbury suffered the knee injury in Tuesday's game and was slated for an MRI following the game, which apparently revealed something that would take at least a couple weeks to heal. It is still not clear how serious the injury is, but we at least know Ellsbury will be out until early-June. Slade Heathcott was recalled from Triple-A to offer depth in center field, but look for Chris Young to see the majority of the starts while Ellsbury is out.

Ellsbury (knee) will undergo an MRI and will miss some time, although it is still unclear how serious the injury is, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

The Yankees will await results of the MRI before setting a timetable for his return, but it sounds like a DL stint could be a possibility. Chris Young is now worth an add in deeper leagues as he figures to see the bulk of the playing time in center field while Ellsbury is out.

Ellsbury left Tuesday's game with a right knee injury, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

It is not clear how serious the injury is, but his status will be updated when more details are available. Carlos Beltran entered the game and Chris Young shifted to center field following Ellsbury's departure. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, according to Newsday's Erik Boland.

Ellsbury has been hot all season and is still hitting .341, but with him going just 1-for-10 over his last two games, manager Joe Girardi felt it was time for a day off. Chris Young will replace Ellsbury in center field, and Brett Gardner will take his place atop the order.

Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to nine straight games, going 1-for-4 in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Ellsbury has been getting it done with more than just his bat as he's swiped seven bases during this nine game stretch to give him an AL-leading 11 steals on the season. The center fielder is slashing .355/.427/.409, and while that likely won't be sustainable over the course of the entire season, he doesn't appear to be showing any signs of slowing down for the time being.

Ellsbury reached base six times, going 4-for-4 with a walk and a hit by pitch in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

Ellsbury has been on fire lately as he's collected 13 hits in his last five games, hitting .565 in that span. On the season he's slashing .351/.432/.402 and continues to be a threat on the basepaths as he's tied for the AL-lead with nine stolen bases.

Ellsbury (hip) is back in the starting lineup Monday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

The Yankees gave Ellsbury a day of rest Sunday following an early exit from Saturday's contest due to hip tightness. He's in his typical leadoff role and covering center field for Monday night. Ellsbury is hitting .282 with 14 runs scored and four steals through 17 games this season.

Ellsbury (hip) is hopeful that he will be able to return for Monday's contest against the Rays, the NY Post reports.

Ellsbury was removed from Saturday's game with hip tightness and was held out of the lineup Sunday, but it sounds like it may have been a more precautionary move as manager Joe Girardi indicated he was leaning toward giving the outfielder a day off at some point anyway. He was able to go through batting practice Sunday and will be re-evaluated prior to Monday's game, which should shed more light on his availability.

Ellsbury (hip) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

Manager Joe Girardi indicated Ellsbury is just getting a day off and expected to rejoin the lineup Monday. With that news, the hip issue appears to be minor, and it sounds as though he should be fine moving forward. However, it's worth checking to ensure he's indeed in the lineup.

Ellsbury was removed from Saturday's game after his hip tightened up, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Manager Joe Girardi said the team is hopeful to get Ellsbury back in the lineup Sunday, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. Chris Young moved to center field and Garrett Jones came in to play right field following Ellsbury's exit. He has not hit for much power in the early going, but he is getting on base at a .370 clip so far which would allow him to score runs and steal bases at an impressive clip this season if he can keep up that pace.
