Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury struggling with running game
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Speedy Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is off to a rough start on the basepaths this season, as he was cut down stealing for the third time in five tries on Monday.|
Over the last two seasons, Ellsbury has swiped 91 bags while getting caught just nine times.
Ellsbury led the American League in stolen bases in 2008 and was tops in the majors in 2009 and 2013.
Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury spotted with ice pack Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was seen with an ice pack on his right hand after Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rays, according to the New York Post.
"It's a little sore from diving into the bases, it's just maintenance," said Ellsbury, who has been dealing with the issue since the Baltimore series.
Ellsbury went 2 for 5 at the plate Sunday and 4 for 14 in the series. He is hitting .286 in 49 at-bats this season.
Yankees' Alex Rodriguez draws start at first base Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez is making his first start of the season at first base Saturday against the Red Sox.
Rodriguez, who saw work at first base this spring, has never played anywhere on the field other than shortstop and third base during his major-league career. He'll be the Yankees' cleanup batter Saturday.
The Yankees are mixing up the lineup for the day game after Friday's 19-inning marathon, with Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, Mark Teixeira and Stephen Drew all out of the lineup Saturday.
Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury reaches four times vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury went 2 for 2 with two walks and one stolen base in his team's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays Wednesday.
Ellsbury was also picked off first base early in the game but was able to bounce back with an excellent offensive effort by the end of the night. He scored two of the team's four runs Wednesday and is now 2 for 6 over his first two games.
A-Rod to likely hit 7th as DH in Yankees' Opening Day lineup
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/4/15) Manager Joe Girardi hinted strongly on Saturday what the Yankees' Opening Day lineup will be and it will included Alex Rodriguez batting seventh as the designated hitter, reports ESPN New York.
Girardi said Saturday's final exhibition game lineup "could be" the team's Opening Day lineup, which leads many to believe that will be the case.
The Yankees lineup on Saturday:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Brett Gardner, LF
3. Carlos Beltran, RF
4. Mark Teixeira, 1B
5. Brian McCann, C
6. Chase Headley, 3B
7. Alex Rodriguez, DH
8. Stephen Drew, 2B
9. Didi Gregorius, SS
|2014 summary: With Jacoby Ellsbury's first season as a Yankee having been completed, the suspense is over as to how his skill set would translate from playing home games at Fenway Park versus at his new home, Yankee Stadium. Fortunately for his Fantasy owners, Ellsbury's doubles power remained intact, even in moving from the American League's best doubles park to one of its worst, as his 27 doubles were just four fewer than his total from the year before. Though his stolen base total fell, Ellsbury remained a top steals threat with a total of 39, and his 16 home runs represented his first double-digit homer season since he swatted 32 of them in 2011. Ellsbury's batting average didn't suffer at Yankee Stadium, where he hit .303, but a .244 road mark slightly dampened his overall value. He finished 10th among outfielders in Rotisserie value and 13th in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Ellsbury has had his share of health issues in recent seasons, but he avoided the Yankees disabled list in 2014. He did miss the final nine games with a hamstring injury, but he will be ready for the beginning of spring training.
2015 outlook: Now that we know that Ellsbury's skills translate well to Yankee Stadium, we can continue to have confidence in his ability to produce like a No. 1 outfielder in standard mixed leagues. He should be drafted no later than the third round in those formats.
