Jacoby Ellsbury had a nice night at the dish in Friday’s victory over the Blue Jays, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and a pair of runs scored.

The fleet-footed outfielder also swiped a pair of bases on the evening. He came into the game without a hit through his first seven at-bats with the Bombers, but got back on track against Dustin McGowan and the Blue Jays. He has already stolen three bases in his first four games, and remains an elite source of speed in all fantasy formats.

Jacoby Ellsbury is not Thursday's lineup against the Astros.

No word about a possible recurrence of his calf issues, so it sounds like he's just getting a breather. Brett Gardner will start in center field while Alfonso Soriano plays left and Ichiro Suzuki gets a start in right. Carlos Beltran will DH.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday that the plan is for Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) to start the team's spring training finale on Saturday.

It's a good sign that there are no worries about Ellsbury's availability for Opening Day, as they couldn't backdate a potential DL stint if he plays Saturday. The outfielder has been nursing a tight right calf since the middle of the month but has played a handful of minor league games with no issues.

Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) will play in a minor league game Friday.

There was some thought that he could return to Grapefruit League action, but the Yankees want to be protected in case they have to make a backdated disabled list move. The feeling, though, is that Ellsbury will be ready to roll on Opening Day next Tuesday in Houston.

Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) could play in the Yankees' Grapefruit League game against the Marlins on Friday.

Ellsbury has been playing in minor league games as he works his way back from tweaking his right calf earlier in camp, and he'll play in another minor league game Thursday. Assuming that goes well, the center fielder could see spring training game action Friday. "I think he will be ready [for Opening Day], as long as he's feeling good and he's healthy," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.

Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) went 1-for-4 with a walk in a minor league game Wednesday.

Ellsbury also played five innings in center field and reported no issues with his right calf. He should be 100 percent for the start of the 2014 regular season.

Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) could return to Grapefruit League action on Sunday.

Ellsbury tweaked his right calf last weekend and hasn't played in a game since, but he'll test things out with batting practice Friday.

Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) will not play in Grapefruit League games on Wednesday or Thursday.

He should be cleared over the weekend and is fully expected to be ready for the start of the 2014 regular season. Ellsbury signed a seven-year, $153 million free agent contract with the Yankees in December.
