Jacoby Ellsbury CF NYY 1 Day

Ellsbury (hamstring) hopes to return before the end of the regular season, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Ellsbury suffered the injury Friday night, and it was initially believed his season may be over. While that still may be the case, Ellsbury offered up the possibility of a return before the season's conclusion. For now, the team will likely run with Brett Gardner in center, with a mixture of Chris Young, Ichiro Suzuki and Carlos Beltran in the other two spots.

Yankees' manager reports that there's "a distinct possibility" that Ellsbury (hamstring) doesn't return this season, Wallace Matthews of ESPN reports.

Ellsbury played in more games in 2014 (147), than he has since 2011 in which he played in 158 games. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, there is a distinct possibility that Ellsbury will be stranded at 147 for the season. Brett Gardner and Chris Young figures to see most of the center field duties for the rest of the season.

Ellsbury (ankle) pinch-hit during Sunday's game, but will still undergo an MRI on his sprained left ankle, ESPN New York reports.

Ellsbury seemed fine after his brief appearance, but was replaced for a pinch-runner after reaching base. The Yankees have the day off Monday, so with an extra day of rest he may be able to return to the lineup Tuesday if nothing unexpected shows up on the MRI.

Ellsbury (ankle) took batting practice and ran the bases prior to Sunday's game, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

Ellsbury will be held out of the lineup Sunday, but he reportedly didn't look to be favoring his ankle while taking part in the pregame activities, suggesting he could be available off the bench. The Yankees could exercise caution and deem Ellsbury unusable in the final game of the series, but with an open date in the schedule Monday, there's a good chance the center fielder will be cleared to resume regular duties Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Ellsbury (ankle) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York reports.

Ellsbury's absence for a second straight game comes as little surprise, after manager Joe Girardi said Saturday night that he'd be "shocked" if the outfielder were able to play the next day. To cover for his absence, the Yankees will move Brett Gardner over to center field, with Zelous Wheeler joining the lineup as the left fielder. The Yankees hope to have Ellsbury back in time for Tuesday's series opener with the Red Sox.

Manager Joe Girardi said after Saturday's loss in Toronto that he'd be "shocked" if Ellsbury was able to play Sunday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Ellsbury initially injured his left ankle in the ninth inning Friday during a slide into home plate, which kept him out Saturday and likely Sunday as well. With an off day Monday, Girardi appears to be hoping that three days of rest is enough time for Ellsbury to assume regular duty in center field and the leadoff spot Tuesday versus the Red Sox.
