Ellsbury said his left elbow (bruised nerve) is improving, and he'll receive treatment, stretch and hit in the batting cage Friday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees decided not to place him on the disabled list before Friday's game against the Cubs but still may if he doesn't improve in the coming days. It's bad news for Ellsbury fantasy owners stuck with him in weekly lineups, though a clear update on his immediate future could come by the end of the weekend.

Ellsbury (elbow) is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Cubs, and he's listed as a bench option, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This means he apparently won't be placed on the disabled list Friday, though his availability to play at all remains uncertain. Ellsbury probably will need at least one more day of rest after he sustained a bruised nerve on his left elbow when crashing into a wall to make a catch Monday. Aaron Hicks is taking his spot in center field and batting second Friday.

Ellsbury (elbow) joined the Yankees on their trip to Chicago Thursday, Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder has missed the last two games with a bruised nerve that he suffered hitting the outfield wall during a catch. Ellsbury is a candidate for the 10-day disabled list, especially because catcher Gary Sanchez (biceps) is expected to be activated Friday. The club, however, is apparently still waiting to make a decision on the corresponding move as close to gametime as possible. Either way, Aaron Hicks will see a decent bump in work for as long as Ellsbury is sidelined and could warrant an add in deep fantasy leagues.

Ellsbury (elbow) will be evaluated Thursday to determine if a DL stint will be required, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury has missed the last two games with a bruised nerve in his left elbow that he sustained while making a catch against the outfield wall, being replaced by Aaron Hicks in center field on both occasions. With the Yankees set to start road series against the Cubs and Reds, they'll lose the benefit of the DH, which may have otherwise been an option to ease Ellsbury back into the lineup. Either way, it sounds like a decision may be reached on the club's off day Thursday or before Friday's tilt in Chicago.

Ellsbury (elbow) remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

A bruised nerve in Ellsbury's elbow will the keep the 33-year-old on the bench for a second straight game, affording Aaron Hicks another opportunity in center field. The Yankees are holding out hope that Ellsbury will be able to return by early next week, but if the discomfort lingers, the team will not have a choice but to opt for a backdated DL stint.

Ellsbury was diagnosed with a bruised nerve in his left elbow, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Joe Girardi said that the team hopes Ellsbury will be able to play in the Yankees' upcoming games against the Cubs and Reds. If he's unable to do so, then they will likely place him on the disabled list to recover. Due to his current status, it wouldn't come as a surprise if Ellsbury was withheld from Wednesday's lineup against Toronto. In the meantime, look for Aaron Hicks to step in and start in his place.

Ellsbury (elbow) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center fielder injured his elbow making a catch in Monday's bout, and it seems that the Yankees are taking the cautious approach with him by holding him out for a day. Aaron Hicks will enter the lineup to fill the void left by him, but Ellsbury could be back in the lineup as soon as Wednesday if all goes as planned.

Ellsbury injured his elbow making a catch during Monday's game against the Blue Jays but is hopeful he can play Tuesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury needed to ice his left (throwing) elbow after making the catch, but he thinks he'll be fine. The Yankees may opt to rest him after the scare, though, so be sure to check his status before the 7:05 PM start time in leagues with daily lineups.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After opening the series Friday with a homer and five RBI, Ellsbury followed up with one of his worst games of the season Saturday, striking out in all four of his at-bats. Manager Joe Girardi will give Ellsbury a day off in the series finale to clear his mind, allowing Aaron Hicks to enter the starting nine in center field. Expect Ellsbury to return to action Monday against the Blue Jays.

Ellsbury went 1-for-5 with two runs scored and five RBI in Friday's 14-11 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The big blow was a seventh-inning grand slam off former Yankee teammate Vidal Nuno, Ellsbury's third homer of the season. The 33-year-old is now slashing .295/.345/.436 through 21 games and is already 6-for-7 in stolen base attempts.
