Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

He's on the bench with the Twins throwing lefty Tommy Milone. Aaron Hicks is in center field. Brian McCann is also sitting out versus the southpaw, as Austin Romine will do the catching.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post expects the Yankees to extend a qualifying offer to Carlos Beltran when he reaches free agency this offseason.

The one-year qualifying offer would likely pay between $16.5-17 million. Of course, New York could change its mind if Beltran cools off and he could even be floated as trade bait if the Yankees become sellers at the trade deadline. But if anyone can afford to pay $17 million for a 40-year-old outfielder, it's the Yankees. The veteran has been the team's best hitter by far this year with 19 HR and 51 RBI through 68 games.

Yankees RHP prospect Vicente Campos tossed seven innings of three-hit ball Wednesday in a win for Double-A Trenton.

He fanned seven and didn't allow a walk. Campos has made a seamless transition to Double-A, cruising to a 2.08 ERA in his first four starts. The 23-year-old was promoted last month after opening the year with a 4-2 record in 10 outings for High-A Tampa. Between the two levels, opponents have hit just .220 off Campos this season with 82 punch-outs in 305 at-bats.

Yankees RHP prospect Chad Green delivered nine strikeouts over seven shutout frames Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He scattered two hits and one walk. Green retired the final 13 hitters he faced while lowering his season ERA to 1.67, second-lowest in the International League. He also holds the IL's third-lowest WHIP at 1.00. Green started a game for the Yankees in May and made a relief appearance for the Bombers earlier this month. Until a full-time job opens up at the major league level, the 25-year-old will continue to jump back and forth between the Bronx and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The X-rays on CC Sabathia's injured right ankle came back negative.

Sabathia rolled his ankle twice in Wednesday's game against the Rockies. He first rolled it in the third inning, then again in the fifth. Manager Joe Girardi pulled him from the game after the second tweak. Sabathia said after the game that he plans on making his next start against the Rangers. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Starlin Castro slugged a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday as the Yankees beat the visiting Rockies 9-8.

Castro took Jason Motte deep on the second pitch of the bottom of the ninth inning with the score tied 8-8. It was Castro's third hit in the slugfest -- the other two being singles. He's batting .257/.290/.419 with 10 home runs and 28 RBI in 69 games this season.

CC Sabathia was lit up for six runs -- five earned -- over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Colorado's offense tagged Sabathia for seven hits, including a Nick Hundley three-run homer in the fourth, but New York rallied in the seventh and then won it in the bottom of the ninth. The big left-hander watched his ERA jump from 2.20 to 2.71. He's been excellent for the most part since the beginning of May but faces another tough matchup next week in the Rangers.

Yankees OF prospect Aaron Judge hammered a pair of home runs Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Tuesday was his first career multi-homer game. It came as part of a four-hit performance. Judge has raked over his last nine games, hitting .387 during that span to raise his average from .241 to .259. Five of his homers and 14 of his 39 RBI this year have come in the month of June. The 24-year-old's 70 strikeouts rank seventh in the International League, though he's only whiffed 15 times in 68 at-bats this month (22.1 percent).

Mark Teixeira (knee) felt good after his rehab debut Tuesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Teixeira went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly, but those results are not all that important. "It’s really all about the health," he said. "There’s really nothing else that you can really simulate playing in a full game, and that’s what I have to get to." The veteran first baseman is hoping to be activated from the disabled list this Saturday. He was diagnosed with a cartilage tear in his right knee in early June.

Jacoby Ellsbury (flu) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

Ellsbury missed Tuesday's game because of a stomach bug. He is starting in center field and batting leadoff Wednesday versus Rockies right-hander Jon Gray.
Jun 22 - 10:44 AM

Brett Gardner went 2-for-3 and scored a pair of runs as the Yankees fell to the Rockies on Tuesday night in New York.

Gardner also drew a pair of walks in the contest, reaching base safely in four of his five plate appearances. He has done a nice job once again as a catalyst atop the Yankees lineup this season, slashing .258/.370/.367 with five homers, 41 runs scored and 11 stolen bases.
Jun 22 - 1:28 AM

Ivan Nova was hit hard in a losing effort against the Rockies on Tuesday, surrendering five runs on eight hits over his four innings.

Nova walked two and struck out one in the ballgame. Charlie Blackmon was his nemesis, blasting a pair of solo homers against him in this one. Nova has struggled for most of the season, compiling a troublesome 5.18 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 64 1/3 innings. He'll look to get back on track on Monday against the Rangers.
Jun 22 - 1:26 AM

Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a stomach bug.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that Ellsbury hasn't been able to keep anything down all day. He might also have to sit out Wednesday's game. Aaron Hicks is starting in center field on Tuesday night.
Jun 21 - 4:00 PM

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.
Jun 21 - 3:42 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday as the Yankees fell to the Twins.

Eovaldi was pitching well until the bottom of the fifth, when the Twins scored their first run of the game on a Max Kepler solo homer. Minnesota then poured on four more in the sixth to drive the right-hander into the visitors' dugout. Eovaldi fell to 6-4 and watched his ERA climb to 5.02. He entered the month of June with a 3.71 ERA.
