Ellsbury went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, a steal, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury stuffed the stat sheet against his former team, highlighting a strong outing with a fifth-inning RBI double. He now has three multi-hit efforts in the last four games, as well as three runs and four RBI. New York was eliminated from playoff contention despite the win, and will likely rest the veteran outfielder in its final series against the Orioles.

Ellsbury (knee) is back in center field and hitting second Wednesday against the Rays, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was anticipated to return Wednesday, and that held true. Ellsbury missed two games with the sore knee, and prior to that he had hit .266/.326/.418 with five home runs and one steal in 41 games since the start of August. The lack of speed on the bases in the second half after stealing 16 bases in 77 first half games suggests his lower half has not been at 100 percent.

Ellsbury's injury is being labelled a right patella injury, and he was sent back to New York for an MRI, the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Ellsbury and Starlin Castro were forced out of Saturday's loss with injuries, but manager Joe Girardi sounded more optimistic about his center fielder, saying that his hope was that it was "just a bruise and couple days off." The results of the MRI should clear up a timetable, but it would appear that the best case scenario would still sideline Ellsbury for a couple of days. Brett Gardner slid from left to center in his absence Saturday, while Tyler Austin entered the game in left field, which is an alignment they may continue to deploy for any games the 33-year-old is forced to miss.
