Jacoby Ellsbury (foot) is back in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners.

Aaron Hicks will start in center field and bat seventh versus Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Ellsbury, who slugged a two-run homer on Wednesday night.
Aug 24 - 1:09 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Ellsbury connected for a two-run shot off Taijuan Walker in the fifth inning, snapping a 1-1 tie in the process. The Mariners wouldn't score again as the Bombers cruised to an easy 5-1 victory. For his part, the speedy Ellsbury is hitting .262/.321/.368 with six homers, 42 RBI and 18 steals over 432 at-bats. He simply hasn't provided a ton of spark this season in terms of fantasy production.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 and homered Friday against the Angels.

The homer was his first of the second half. He entered the night hitting .224/.272/.267 with just one steal in 116 at-bats since the All-Star break. Still, the Yankees haven't used his struggles as an excuse to move him down in the lineup or to give him less playing time.

Jacoby Ellsbury is getting the day off Wednesday.

Aaron Hicks will start in center field and bat ninth versus Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ. The left-handed Ellsbury owns a disappointing .263/.326/.361 batting line in 110 games this season with New York.

Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to help the Yankees top the Red Sox 4-2 on Thursday.

Ellsbury's double, his 17th of the year and his only hit in four at-bats, gave the Yankees a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The outfielder has now driven in a run in four straight games, giving him 38 RBI on the year. Ellsbury is hitting .270/.334/.368 in 105 games overall.
Aug 11 - 10:55 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Yankees' win on Friday.

The excellent night boosted his batting average to .275 after 100 games. He has 17 stolen bases but that is the only counting stat he helps his fantasy owners with. He has amassed just four homers, 46 runs and 33 RBI.
Aug 5 - 11:03 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in Monday's win over the Mets.

Ellsbury doubled and scored in the fourth, singled in a run in the fifth and then walked and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning. His good baserunning helped lead to the go-ahead run, as Ellsbury got a great jump off of second base and beat a throw to third on a sac bunt attempt. It's just his second multi-hit game in his last 13 tries.
Aug 1 - 11:08 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

He's on the bench with the Giants starting lefty Madison Bumgarner. Brian McCann is also sitting out, as the Yanks are going with Aaron Hicks in center field and Austin Romine at catcher.
Jul 22 - 3:37 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Ellsbury crunched a three-run tater off Carlos Carrasco in the second inning. The dinger was his fourth of the season. In addition to the quartet of bombs, the speedy outfielder has driven in 29 runs, scored 37 and picked up 16 steals over 294 at-bats. He enters the All-Star break the owner of a .279/.347/.398 triple-slash. Ellsbury offers a plus-speed element, but his 32-homer 2011 with the Red Sox is looking more and more like an outlier. Ellsbury has just one other season with double-digit homers -- he cracked 16 in his first season with the Yankees back in 2014.
Jul 10 - 5:20 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-4 on Wednesday as the Yankees lost to the White Sox.

The flurry of hits boosted his line to .280/.348/.396 for the season. He can help his owners a bit in batting average and on-base percentage but his primary source of value is his stolen bases. His 16 steals rank eighth in the majors in a year where speed is down across the board.
Jul 6 - 11:32 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 and scored a run as the Yankees lost to the Padres on Saturday.

Ellsbury scored on a Starlin Castro groundout in the sixth inning for the Yankees' only run of the game. The 32-year-old Ellsbury still steals a lot of bases but doesn't do much else to help his fantasy owners.
Jul 3 - 1:09 AM

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

He's on the bench with the Twins throwing lefty Tommy Milone. Aaron Hicks is in center field. Brian McCann is also sitting out versus the southpaw, as Austin Romine will do the catching.
