Yankees' Girardi still has no timetable for Jacoby Ellsbury's return
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi still did not have a definitive timetable Saturday for the return of outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who won't need surgery for a knee injury.
"Will it be 15 days? I think it’s hard to say. I think it might be a little bit more, but the reason I say that is because of the type of player he is," Girardi said, per The Journal News. "This is not a guy that can just go swing and DH and not have to worry about running, so it’s really going to depend on treatment.
"Every injury depends on treatment and how they respond. Some are more predictable than others, but because of the type of player he is, it’s a little harder to predict."
Yankees' Girardi: Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) won't need surgery
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Wednesday that outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury won't require surgery on his injured knee, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Ellsbury was placed on the disabled list with a knee sprain on Wednesday, and general manager Brian Cashman said that the injury wasn't expected to be a "long-term issue."
The outfielder, who suffered the injury on Tuesday, hasn't been informed about the severity of the injury, the Journal News reports.
"They literally haven’t told me anything," Ellsbury said. "They put me in a brace and I’ve just been doing treatment all day. I’ll be on the plane tonight, off day tomorrow, go in and do treatment again, and Friday see the team doctor."
Ellsbury has hit .324/.412/.372 with one home run, six RBI and 14 stolen bases in 148 at-bats.
Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury placed on 15-day DL with knee sprain
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has officially been placed on the disabled list, the team announced Wednesday. Ellsbury exited Tuesday night's game when he tweaked his knee after swinging at a pitch. He finished that at-bat in the fourth inning, but did not return to take the field.
"It's not what you want," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "If we are going to lose him for some time, somebody's got to step up. That's the bottom line. It's part of the game."
Ellsbury is out with a right knee sprain, and his return is uncertain at this time. However, general manager Brian Cashman is not worried about a long-term absence.
“At the early juncture, I don’t think it’s a long-term issue,” Cashman said, per the New York Post.
Jacoby Ellsbury headed to DL; Yanks to call up OF Slade Heathcott
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/19/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain, according to MLB.com.|
Ellsbury left Tuesday's loss to the Nationals in the fourth inning with the knee issue.
To fill the roster spot, the Yankees will call up outfielder Slade Heathcott from Triple-A.
In 36 games in Triple-A this season, Heathcott was hitting .280 with one homer and 17 RBI.
Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will undergo MRI
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/19/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Jacoby Ellsbury will require an MRI for his knee, reports Newsday.|
Ellsbury left Tuesday's game in Washington D.C. with the knee issue.
Girardi added that the center fielder may miss some time but couldn't comment further until the MRI results are in.
|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.
