Jacoby Ellsbury is heading for an MRI on his right hip after the injury forced him to leave Friday's game against the Red Sox.

While the club is calling the MRI precautionary, given the lengthy history with Ellsbury, it's certainly concerning. Aaron Hicks replaced him in the lineup on Friday and would be in line for extended playing time if Ellsbury lands on the disabled list.

Jacoby Ellsbury was forced to leave Friday's game against the Red Sox in the first inning with an apparent injury.

Ellsbury delivered a solid weekend's worth of fantasy stats before departing, leading the game off with a walk and deftly swiping second and third base before scoring on a Brian McCann double. It was diving into third base though that he sustained the injury, which could be to his hip. Aaron Hicks replaced him in the Yankees' lineup. Look for an update on Ellsbury's status shortly.

May 6 - 7:19 PM

Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.
