Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) expects to be back in the lineup Friday.

Ellsbuery exited Thursday's contest after aggravating a right hip injury, but he didn't need any tests and is expected to be fine. The outfielder homered in the game before leaving and is batting .381/.443/.524 over his current 16-game hitting streak.

Jacoby Ellsbury left Thursday's game against the Mariners in the seventh inning with right hip tightness, but not before homering and walking.

Ellsbury slammed against the outfield wall in the fifth inning while making a leaping grab of James Jones' long fly, aggravating an injury he first sustained Sunday against the Royals. He would have sat Monday were it not for that day's rainout. Ellsbury is riding a 16-game hitting streak that has seen his batting average jump from .258 to .293. He was ranked as the No. 3 fantasy outfielder over the past 15 days prior to this evening, according to ESPN's Player Rater. Hopefully the power will pick up, because that's the only aspect of Ellsbury's game that has been missing. He's on pace for 10 long flies and 45 steals. Consider the start center fielder day-to-day.

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Monday's lineup due to a sore hip.

Ellsbury suffered the injury when he tripped while rounding first base during Sunday's game. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he's not concerned, so we should consider the outfielder day-to-day. Brett Gardner is in center field Monday.

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Monday's lineup against the Royals.

He's presumably getting a routine day off. Brett Gardner will start in center field while Ichiro Suzuki plays left and Alfonso Soriano starts in right. Carlos Beltran will serve as the DH.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.

Ellsbury blasted a three-run shot off of Jesse Chavez in the third inning, staking the Yankees to a 4-0 lead. It was not one they would hold, as they would allow runs in four consecutive innings following the homer. Ellsbury has hit safely in nine consecutive games and has his slash line back up to .280/.349/.402 with 25 RBI and 16 stolen bases.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 with three RBI and two steals to lead the Yankees to a 7-4 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Ellsbury became one of the rare players to notch two steals in a game against Yadier Molina; no one has ever had three. It's actually pretty bizarre; he has three steals in three games against the Cardinals after totaling one in his previous 22 games this month (he also didn't attempt a steal against the Cardinals in the World Series last year). Overall, he's 14-for-16 stealing bases this year.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a go-ahead solo homer and two runs scored as the Yankees defeated the White Sox 4-3 in 10 innings on Saturday.

Ellsbury started a three-run rally in the ninth inning with a single against Ronald Belisario and took Zach Putnam deep in the 10th to put the Yankees ahead. The high-priced outfielder entered Saturday's action with just three hits in his last 36 at-bats, so this was nice to see. Fantasy owners will have to hope that this will get him going again.
