Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-3 and swiped two bases to help the Yankees edge the Braves 8-7 on Thursday.
Ellsbury must feel like he has something to prove this spring; he had as many steals today as he did in 78 spring games dating back to 2012. And one of those two steals in six years came this spring on Feb. 28. Certainly, an Ellsbury resurgence would benefit the Yankees this year, but it's about a low more than steals. It just doesn't seem likely that he's going to suddenly become a plus hitter again at age 33. Mar 9 - 4:53 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-2 with a double and a solo home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League win over the Braves.

Ellsbury connected for a solo home run off Jaime Garcia in the first inning and later doubled before he called it a day. During regular-season play, the speedy veteran has managed double-digit home runs just once in the last five seasons. He holds fantasy value for his wheels -- at least 20 steals in four straight campaigns -- but his value outside of AL-only formats is relatively limited.

Jacoby Ellsbury reported to Yankees camp Tuesday.

Ellsbury was cleared to arrive late to spring training because his wife delivered the couple's second child last week. "We'll watch him the next few days," manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday. "Obviously, he's a couple of days behind. His wife, Kelsey, is great, the baby is great. Physically, he looks good. We'll see where he is sometime at the end of the weekend or early next week."

Jacoby Ellsbury will be late to Yankees camp in order to attend the birth of his child.

Ellsbury's wife is being induced soon. He should be in camp sometime next week.
Feb 17 - 1:38 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said in an interview with YES Network on Monday that the club is considering breaking up Nos. 1 and 2 hitters Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner.

If they did make a move -- which Cashman said would ultimately be up to manager Joe Girardi -- one of Ellsbury or Gardner would presumably hit leadoff and the other would move to a lower spot in the order. Gardner has hit .259/.340/.395 to Ellsbury's .264/.326/.382 over the last three years and would seem to be a better option for the leadoff spot. Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News lists Starlin Castro as a possibility to be moved up in the order if a change is made.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Ellsbury walked and stole his 19th base of the season in the first inning, scoring on a Starlin Castro double. He then knocked in his 56th RBI with a double in the fifth inning. The 33-year-old owns a .262/.327/.374 line with nine homers and 70 runs scored in 145 games overall.

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) said he expects to return to the Yankees' lineup on Wednesday.

Ellsbury suffered a bone bruise in his right knee on Saturday at Fenway Park, but an MRI taken Sunday back in New York showed no structural damage. He is sitting out again Tuesday, with Mason Williams playing center field, but this injury will not be a season-ender for the 33-year-old Ellsbury.

Jacoby Ellsbury returned to New York on Sunday for an MRI on his right knee.

Ellsbury suffered a bone bruise in that knee on Saturday at Fenway Park and could be in danger of missing the final two weeks of the regular season. There should be more information ahead of Tuesday night's series opener at Tropicana Field. Mason Williams started in center field for the Yankees on Sunday night versus the Red Sox.

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Red Sox.

Ellsbury is considered day-to-day with a bruised right knee that he sustained in Saturday's game. Mason Williams is starting in center field while Rob Refsnyder gets the call in right.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 04:50:00 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury left Saturday's game against the Red Sox with an injury to his right patellar tendon.

The injury occurred when Ellsbury tried unsuccessfully to rob Xander Bogaerts of a seventh-inning double. It looked like his knee made contact with the wall in right center field. Ellsbury finished the inning but was later replaced by Brett Gardner in center. Ellsbury is already on his way back to New York for an MRI. Starlin Castro also left Saturday's game with an injury. After losing three straight to Boston, the Yankees' playoff hopes are hanging on by a thread.

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers.

He'll take a seat against lefty Julio Urias. Brett Gardner will start in center field while Rob Refsnyder plays left.

Jacoby Ellsbury clubbed a two-run homer on Saturday, pacing the Yankees offense in a 5-1 victory over the Rays.

Ellsbury got the Bombers on the board with his two-run blast off Chris Archer in the sixth inning and Masahiro Tanaka made sure that it was enough to stand up. He also doubled, finishing the day 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .271/.335/.388 with eight homers and 51 RBI in what has been a disappointing season for the 32-year-old outfielder.

Jacoby Ellsbury finished 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Yankees' 5-3 win over the Blue Jays on Monday.

Ellsbury had his way with Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, producing a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and an RBI single in the bottom of the third. He also singled -- this time off Francisco Liriano -- in the bottom of the fifth. Ellsbury still owns a disappointing .268/.329/.377 overall batting line in 2016.
