Ellsbury was held out of Wednesday's lineup with a sore foot, Doug Miller of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury fouled a ball off his right foot in Tuesday's game and was able to stay in for the remainder of the contest, but manager Joe Girardi decided to hold him out Wednesday for precautionary reasons. It sounds as though the ailment is not overly serious and the team has a scheduled off day Thursday, so Ellsbury could be back in the lineup for Friday's tilt against the Orioles.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears to be just a standard day off for Ellsbury, as the Yankees may be factoring in the day game following Tuesday's night game as a reason to give the veteran some rest. Aaron Hicks will start in center field and hit seventh despite the fact that the Mariners are sending a righty, Hisashi Iwakuma, to the mound.

Ellsbury homered, scored twice and drove in two runs in a win Tuesday over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury has now homered twice in his past five games. This power surge follows a stretch in which he went 116 at-bats without a home run and hit just .224/.272/.267 from July 15 through August 16. Unfortunately, that has been the Ellsbury who has shown up for most of the year; he owns just a .262/.321/.368 batting line and six home runs on the season.

Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with his fifth home run of the season in Friday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

His lead-off long ball gave the Yankees a lead straight out of the gate, and that was ultimately all they would need, though they did tack on some insurance in the 7-0 win. Ellsbury drove in a pair in the win -- also hitting a run-scoring single in the third inning -- and the home run was his first since July 10. After a disappointing couple of months, the 32-year-old is hitting for a solid .286/.333./.397 line in August.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

It looks to be nothing more than a scheduled day off for Ellsbury, who's started the last three games in center field. With Brett Gardner returning to the lineup in left field, it will be Aaron Hicks who gets the nod in center, while Aaron Judge starts in right.

Ellsbury went 4-for-5 with one RBI in Friday's win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

One of the hits was a double -- his 16th of the season -- as Ellsbury has already topped last year's output in that category. He also matched his 2015 RBI total at 33 and is now 10-for-22 (.455) with a pair of extra-base hits in the month of August. It's overall still been something of a disappointing campaign for the 32-year-old, but there are signs Ellsbury could be turning it around late.

Ellsbury went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in Monday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury also scored a pair of runs in the contest, including the go-ahead tally in the 10th inning. The center fielder is hitting .304 over his last six games with a pair of extra base hits, but the former 70-base stealer has just one stolen base since July 3.

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.
