Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup for Tuesday's Wild Card Game versus the Astros.
It's pretty stunning to see a player with a $153 million contract not starting a winner-take-all game, but it makes sense for the Yanks to go with Chris Young instead if you break it down. Astros starter Dallas Keuchel is deadly against lefties and Ellsbury has really struggled since the beginning of September, hitting .202/.254/.246 with no homers. Young is in left field and batting second, while Brett Gardner has shifted over to center. Tue, Oct 6, 2015 04:15:00 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury (back) remains out of the Yankees starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

He was a little sore after crashing into a wall during Wednesday's game. There's still a chance that he returns to the lineup for the nightcap.

Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the Yankees' lineup Thursday after crashing into a wall on Wednesday night.

Ellsbury just has a bit of back soreness and will presumably be available off the bench Thursday at Yankee Stadium. New York is trying to get as healthy as possible heading into next week's American League Wild Card Game. Chase Headley (back) is also resting on Thursday.

Jacoby Ellsbury was hitless in four at-bats, but the Yankees still defeated the Blue Jays 5-0 on Sunday.

Ellsbury popped out twice, grounded out, and struck out. The outfielder returned from the disabled list on July 8 after healing up from a right knee sprain, but he hasn't been the same. Since July 8, he's hitting .214/.255/.333. 34 of his 50 hits over 234 at-bats have been singles, and he's only 4-for-7 in stolen base attempts.

Jacoby Ellsbury (illness) is back in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

Ellsbury had to leave Friday's game and didn't start Saturday due to a stomach bug, although he did come off the bench Saturday. He's evidently feeling better and is in center field and batting leadoff Sunday.

Jacoby Ellsbury (illness) came off the bench and went 0-for-2 against the Rays on Saturday.

Ellsbury was held out of the starting lineup Saturday after leaving Friday's game due to illness, but he pinch-hit for Chris Young in the seventh inning and remained in the game. It looks like he'll be good to go moving forward.

Jacoby Ellsbury (illness) is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

Ellsbury was lifted from Friday's contest due to a stomach ailment, and it appears as though he's still feeling under the weather on Saturday. Chris Young will start in left field and bat second for the Bombers against Matt Moore and the Rays.

Jacoby Ellsbury was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rays due to an upset stomach.

That's certainly good news that it wasn't an injury that forced him out of action. He should be ready to rejoin the lineup in a day or two provided he's feeling better.

Jacoby Ellsbury was removed from Friday's game against the Rays in the fifth inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear exactly what the issue is, but the fact that the oft-injured outfielder was pulled in favor of Chris Young isn't a good sign. The Yankees should provide an update on his status soon.

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

An MRI on Jacoby Ellsbury's hip confirmed that he's merely dealing with a bruise.

Ellsbury injured the hip on a dive Tuesday and then sat out Wednesday. The hope is that he'll return to action Friday, although it's not a given. "The MRI was to make sure there was nothing more," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "He has a contusion of the muscle. There are obviously worse things that (the MRI) could’ve showed."

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday due to a sore hip.

Ellsbury banged the hip on a dive during Tuesday's game. It's uncertain whether he'll be available off the bench, but the Yanks hope Ellsbury is ready to play Friday after Thursday's off day. Brett Gardner is starting in center field and Chris Young is in left field Wednesday.
