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.

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.
