Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday that Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) will not return this season.
While he has made progress in recent days, Girardi conceded that there is no reason for him to risk re-injury and that he wanted Ellsbury to head home healthy after the season. He did a nice job in his first season in the Bronx, slashing .271/.328/.419 with 16 homers, 70 RBI and 39 stolen bases in 149 games. Sep 26 - 10:34 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi conceded Wednesday that "it's going to be pretty tough" for Jacoby Ellsbury (hamstring) to make it back this season.

It's no surprise, as Ellsbury strained his right hamstring on Friday and has yet to be cleared for baseball activities. With the Yankees' postseason hopes essentially dashed, it doesn't make sense to rush Ellsbury back. His successful first season in New York concludes with a .271/.328/.419 batting line, 16 homers, 70 RBI and 39 stolen bases.

While Yankees manager Joe Girardi said there's a good chance Ellsbury will be shut down, if he progresses in the coming days he could return for a couple of games by the end of next week. Fantasy owners should have a contingency option in place in case he can't go though.

Ellsbury sustained a strained hamstring in Friday's win over the Blue Jays and is set to undergo an MRI on Saturday. With the Yankees playoff hopes all but finished, there's no reason to rush Ellsbury back and risk further aggravation.
