Ellsbury is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, marking his third straight game on the bench, Pete Caldera of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees' lineup configuration aligns with what manager Joe Girardi acknowledged Saturday: that rookie Clint Frazier has vaulted ahead of Ellsbury on the depth chart and would continue to receive regular starts, according to Erik Boland of Newsday. The recent return of Matt Holliday from the disabled list had already resulted in Ellsbury seeing his opportunities diminish, and things don't figure to improve for the veteran unless Frazier falls flat. Ellsbury shouldn't be owned in most shallow leagues, and with a sickly .249/.342/.360 line over 221 plate appearances this season, it may be time to cut him in certain deeper formats, too.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the second game in a row that Ellsbury is watching from the bench. Although it's likely that he would've sat out with a southpaw on the mound for Seattle, that was not the case Friday night, making it seem like the outfield alignment of Clint Frazier, Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge is the preference of manager Joe Girardi. Ellsbury's playing time could wane unless he begins to pick it up at the plate, which will be tough to do if he only logs sporadic playing time.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder is batting just .177 over the past 30 games, so he'll head to the bench for a night off. The Yankees will go with an alignment of Clint Frazier, Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge in the outfield, which could become a trend if Ellsbury is unable to pick things up at the plate.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury didn't start in Saturday's game, but still picked up three plate appearances off the bench with the contest lasting 16 innings. He'll be able to pick up some rest during the matinee Sunday before likely rejoining the lineup for the second contest at 8;05 p.m. EST. Brett Gardner draws the start in center field in Game 1.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury will get a day off following an 0-for-4 performance at the plate during Friday night's loss. In his place, Brett Gardner slides over to center while Clint Frazier nabs the start in left.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Southpaw Carlos Rodon is on the hill for the White Sox, so manager Joe Girardi will give Ellsbury his first rest since he was activated from the disabled list two games ago. Ellsbury still looks set to occupy a near-everyday role in center field, but his at-bats will likely fall by the wayside once Aaron Hicks (oblique) returns from the DL.

Ellsbury was reinstated from the 7-day concussion disabled list Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury has been easing back into regular activities after suffering a brutal head injury when he collided with a wall in a late-May game against the Royals. The veteran outfielder has looked good in a rehab assignment at Triple-A, going 3-for-8 with two doubles over two games, and the scuffling Yankees could certainly use his bat back in the lineup. Ellsbury was hitting a respectable .281 with 14 RBI and eight stolen bases when he hit the DL and should return to his regular post in center field, especially with Aaron Hicks (oblique) landing on the 10-day DL.

Ellsbury (concussion) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury was scheduled to play just five innings, and he went 1-for-3 while manning center field. The 33-year-old, now fully free of concussion symptoms, is set to continue his rehab assignment Sunday before shifting to Double-A Trenton at the start of the week. The club has yet to offer up a firm timetable for Ellsbury to be activated, but it now appears that will be coming sooner rather than later.

Ellsbury (concussion) has cleared concussion protocol and will set out on a rehab assignment soon, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury recently took batting practice Thursday and has felt good without any affects of the concussion that has sidelined him since May 24. The outfielder has missed nearly a month of action now, but the Yankees will still remain cautious with Ellsbury, especially with Aaron Hicks proving to be a viable fill-in. There should be information on Ellsbury's rehab stint within the next couple days.
