Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.
We haven't heard anything about an injury, so he's likely just getting a breather. Brett Gardner will start in center field Monday while the newly-recalled Zoilo Almonte will start in left.
Mark Teixeira (lat) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again Monday against the Rangers.
Teixeira hasn't played since last Saturday due to a lower left lat strain, but he came through an extensive workout Sunday with no issues. The Yankees remain hopeful that he'll be able to avoid a DL stint and return soon.
Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) is back in Monday's lineup against the Cubs.
CarGo rolled his ankle prior to Saturday's game and missed two straight starts, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll bat third against Tsuyoshi Wada.
Ryan Hanigan (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.
The plan calls for him to play two games there before hopefully coming off the DL on Friday. Hanigan has been sidelined for two and a half weeks with an oblique strain.
Yankees recalled OF Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Almonte, 25, is 4-for-25 (.160) with a homer over 10 games with the Yankees this season. He'll serve as an extra outfielder.
Yankees designated LHP Jeff Francis for assignment.
The Yankees have called up Zoilo Almonte to take his spot on the active roster. Francis was acquired from the A's earlier this month and allowed one run on two hits in 1 2/3 innings over two appearances.
Aaron Hill (hand) is out of Monday's lineup against the Reds.
Hill left Saturday's game after he was hit on the right hand with a pitch and will now miss his second straight start. He is available off the bench Monday, so it sounds like he'll be ready to go soon.
David Lennon of Newsday hears that the Mets will not move top prospect Noah Syndergaard in "any type of deal."
Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the Mets are prepared to offer Syndergaard in a possible deal for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, but that's apparently not the case. Of course, there's no evidence that the two sides have had serious talks, so it's hard to say for sure. Either way, it would obviously take an immense talent for the Mets to consider parting with him.
