Jacoby Ellsbury swatted his second home run of the season as the Yankees topped the Athletics 5-4 in their series finale in Oakland on Sunday.
His second inning blast off A's starter Jesse Hahn put the Bombers ahead 2-1. It was the lone hit for Ellsbury in four at-bats, and he was also caught stealing for the first time this season. He has done a nice job as a table-setter atop the Yankees lineup this season, slashing .275/.345/.427 with a pair of homers and 14 RBI. May 22 - 7:47 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury tested his hip injury by jogging between first and second on Wednesday.

This will be the fifth straight game he has missed. Aaron Hicks takes over in center while Ben Gamel earns a right field start.

Jacoby Ellsbury is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a strained hip muscle.

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.

May 6 - 8:43 PM

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 - 7:42 PM

Fantasy owners desperately want the power to return, but the 32-year-old is showing that he can still be an effective fantasy player with a good batting average and the potential for 30-plus steals.
May 4 - 11:12 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury singled and smacked a solo homer in Monday's win over the Rangers.

The longball was Ellsbury's first of the season, and it came off a left-hander (Cesar Ramos). The 32-year-old has picked it up at the dish of late, batting .375 over his last six games. Ellsbury also has five stolen bases on the year.
