Jacoby Ellsbury reached base three times and drove in a couple runs Tuesday in Baltimore.

Ellsbury plated the final two runs in what was a six-run third inning for the Yankees. It had looked like that was going to be enough, but the Orioles charged back and won on a Manny Machado walk-off blast. Ellsbury has reached base 12 times over his last five games.

Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer Tuesday against the Mets.

It was one of two dingers the Yankees had off of Jacob deGrom, as Gary Sanchez also took the right-hander deep. Ellsbury has now homered in consecutive starts, although his playing time has been cut and will continue to be with Aaron Hicks back from the disabled list.

Jacoby Ellsbury finished 2-for-4 with three RBI in the Yankees' win over the Indians on Sunday.

Ellsbury singled in the top of the fifth inning and hit a bases-clearing three-run triple in the Yankees' five-run sixth inning. It's been a drag of a 2017 season for the well-compensated 33-year-old outfielder, who's still batting just .245/.325/.359. He has 21 RBI in 67 games.
Aug 6 - 4:26 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

This really isn't that newsworthy. Ellsbury hasn't been an everyday player for the Yankees in quite some time and should continue to serve as their fourth outfielder behind starters Clint Frazier, Brett Gardner and Aaron Judge. The 33-year-old has hit .125 with no home runs or RBI since the All-Star break. He's not of much use to fantasy owners anymore.
Jul 22 - 8:22 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's showdown against the Red Sox.

Jul 8 - 4:06 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.

Ellsbury is hitting just .188 (6-for-32) with one extra-base hit (a triple) and three RBI in eight games since returning from the concussion disabled list. The 33-year-old was originally expected to move into a part-time role upon his return, but he’ll see regular playing time until Aaron Hicks makes it back from his oblique injury.
Jul 4 - 4:40 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-3 with a triple, a steal and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Ellsbury spent just over a month on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but has looked spirited enough since coming back. The triple on Thursday was his first of the season, the stolen base his ninth. He has scored five runs in his three games played since being activated.
Jun 30 - 2:20 AM
