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.
