Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Rockies.

Ellsbury will sit with right-hander Chad Bettis starting for Colorado. Aaron Hicks will start in center field instead. Hicks had two hits (including an infield single) against Bettis last week, so perhaps Yankees manager Joe Girardi preferred the matchup, not that we're endorsing it.
