Ellsbury was removed early from Wednesday's game against the Royals with a neck sprain and a concussion, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury was forced out of the contest after just one inning following his collision with the outfield wall. Although nothing is confirmed, this will likely send him to the 7-day disabled list. He'll be re-evaluated Thursday, and if he is forced to go on the DL, expect Aaron Hicks to take over the bulk of center field duties in his absence.

Ellsbury was removed early from Wednesday's contest after colliding with the wall, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury initially stayed in the game after colliding with the wall in the first inning, though Aaron Hicks replaced him in the second inning before he had a chance to bat. It's currently unclear what forced Ellbury out, though more should be known following the conclusion of Wednesday's contest.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Ellsbury is in the midst of an eight-game hitting streak, he'll head to the bench for Monday's series opener. Aaron Hicks, who is batting .301 with a 1.011 OPS this season, will take his place in center field for the game.

Ellsbury is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals, Pete Caldera of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals will bring southpaw Jason Vargas and his league-leading 1.01 ERA to the mound Wednesday, so Yankees manager Joe Girardi will clear his lineup of at least one lefty bat in Ellsbury for matchup purposes. With Ellsbury sitting, Aaron HIcks will check into center field and bat eighth.

Ellsbury is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Ellsbury didn't have his best showing at the plate during Game 1 as he went just 1-for-5. However, he managed to contribute to the Yankees' victory by scoring a run. He'll take a seat for Game 2 and give way to Aaron Hicks in center field.

Ellsbury (elbow) went 2-for-6 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 18-inning 5-4 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

It's a good sign for Ellsbury after he missed three games with a bruised nerve in his left elbow. The home run was his fourth of the year, and his two-hit effort raised his season slash line to .286/.356/.440. The fact that Ellsbury won't have to go on the disabled list, barring any setbacks, likely means that Aaron Hicks will resume his role as the fourth outfielder in the Bronx.

Ellsbury (elbow) is listed as in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center fielder sat out three games due to the bruised nerve in his left elbow, but it appears he's safely avoided a trip to the DL and will suit up for the series finale at Wrigley Field. Aaron Hicks -- who took over in center field in Ellbury's stead -- will move over to left for the contest, while Brett Gardner will take a seat against southpaw Jon Lester.

Ellsbury (elbow) hopes to return to the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had strips of kinesio tape on his left elbow Saturday to take some of the stress off his bruised nerve. While Ellsbury hopes to return to action Sunday, he has not thrown yet, so that return date is far from a guarantee. Aaron Hicks is starting in center field and hitting second against left-hander Brett Anderson.

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.
