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.

Ellsbury (knee) will play a rehab game for the Yankees' Florida State League affiliate Monday night, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

The outfielder has missed more than a month with a knee injury, but his clearance to play in rehab games is a major step in the right direction. Assuming everything goes well Monday, Ellsbury could progress to a higher organizational level before returning to the Yankees sometime in early-to-mid-July.

Ellsbury (knee) will report to the Yankees' spring training facility in Tampa on Monday and is expected to begin a rehab assignment this week.

The Yankees will most likely have Ellsbury begin his assignment at the organization's Florida State League affiliate in Tampa, before possibly advancing to the upper stages of the minors for a few games. Ellsbury was cleared to head to Tampa after working out on the field Sunday in Houston without any notable knee issues, an encouraging sign that he's nearing a return. The Yankees' center fielder has been sidelined since May 19 with the injury, depriving the lineup of one of its most integral pieces.

Ellsbury (knee) could head out on a rehab assignment as soon as Monday, ESPN New York reports.

Manager Joe Girardi said Ellsbury will work out with the team prior to Saturday's game, and if his right knee responds well, the outfielder could be cleared to begin playing in minor league games. It's not entirely clear how long of a rehab assignment Ellsbury will need after missing more than a month with the injury, but a return next weekend seems within the realm of possibility.

Ellsbury (knee) ran the bases Thursday afternoon, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Ellsbury continues to progress in his recovery from a knee sprain, but he's still without a return timetable. The expectation is that he'll require a rehab stint before rejoining the Yankees, and the team should offer more clarity on the situation in the coming days. Originally, Ellsbury was hoping to be back with the team before the end of the month, but that looks to be rather unrealistic at this point.
