Ellsbury (oblique) will be eligible to return from the 10-day disabled list prior to Thursday's game against Baltimore, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

General manager Brian Cashman said that Ellsbury has been receiving at-bats in minor-league games in Tampa but has not played a full nine innings or appeared in back-to-back days at this point. Cashman also admitted that the club is speeding up Ellsbury's timeline now that Aaron Hicks (ribs) also landed on the disabled list. There will likely be a definitive answer to Ellsbury's return date early next week.

Ellsbury (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

This had already been reported, but the move was made official on Opening Day. Ellsbury is expected back in mid-to-late April. In the meantime, Aaron Hicks appears poised for everyday work in center field, and he will likely remain a borderline everyday player even when Ellsbury is activated.

Ellsbury (oblique) went 0-for-2 with a walk in Thursday's spring game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder also played four innings in center field. Ellsbury is still expected to begin the season on the disabled list, but it's good to see him ramping up his activity without issue. He appears to be on track for a mid-April return.

Ellsbury (oblique) will participate in batting practice Wednesday and play in a Grapefruit League contest against the Twins on Thursday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury took part in a full workout Tuesday and will continue to ramp up activity before camp breaks next week. The outfielder is on track to begin the year on the disabled list, but should be able to join the team in mid-April. Thursday will mark the first time he's played in a spring game since the beginning of March.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed that Ellsbury (oblique) would put in a full workout Tuesday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees had been planning to run Ellsbury through some drills Sunday or Monday, but those plans were tabled after the outfielder dealt with a fever. Though Ellsbury is no longer ill, his lack of activity since sustaining a oblique strain earlier this month will result in him opening the season on the disabled list. Ellsbury is hopeful to play before the Grapefruit League schedule ends and is expected to stick around at extended spring training to continue his rehab. He could be ready to join the Yankees at some point in April.

Ellsbury (oblique) is unlikely to be ready by Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury has been out since the start of March with a strained oblique. He's returning to hitting within a few days but is not likely to have enough time to get up to speed by the start of the season. Whether that means that he'll start on the disabled list or just miss a game or two is not yet clear.

Ellsbury (oblique) will likely receive at-bats during a simulated game in the coming days, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to battling an oblique injury, it was reported that Ellsbury was battling a sore throat and fever Sunday. Fortunately, it appears that he'll be able to participate in baseball activities soon, at which point it should become clear when he'll be available to return to action.

Ellsbury (oblique) could return to Grapefruit League play Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

An oblique strain has kept Ellsbury on the shelf for all of March, but he was able to take batting practice with no issues Saturday and is nearing a return to game action. It's still unclear if he'll have enough time to get up to speed before Opening Day, but his status should clear up as he continues to ramp up his activity in the coming weeks.

Manager Aaron Boone said Ellsbury (oblique) is nearing a return to exhibition games, though he may not be ready for Opening Day, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. "We're probably getting into that range where we're butting up against it," Boone said.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury has been sidelined since the beginning of March with an oblique strain. While he's improving and seemingly on the cusp of a return to Grapefruit League action, it appears the veteran outfielder still may not have enough time to get up to speed before the start of the season given how late it is in camp. If Ellsbury is ultimately unable to go by Opening Day, Tyler Wade could get a brief look as the Yankees' fourth outfielder.
