Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) likely to return to lineup on Monday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/27/15) When asked if center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) would return to the lineup on Monday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said "I sure hope so," reports NJ.com.|
Ellsbury was pulled from Saturday's game with a hip issue and sat out Sunday's game as well.
Girardi said Ellsbury was available if needed off the bench on Sunday, indicating he feels Ellsbury's healthy to play.
The Yankees begin a three-game series Monday against the Rays.
Jacoby Ellsbury not in Yankees' lineup on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the lineup for Sunday' night's game.
Ellsbury has been bothered by hip tightness, although treatment has helped with the problem. He was due for a day off soon anyway, so manager Joe Girardi gave him Sunday to rest the hip. The team was hopeful that Ellsbury would be back in the lineup on Monday.
"His hip got a little tight yesterday," Girardi said. "I don’t know if it's from one of his sliding catches that he irritated it on, but I just decided, let's give him today and I’ll give him about 48 hours to see if he could play tomorrow."
Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury pulled with hip tightness

|(4/25/15) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was removed from Saturday's game against the Mets after feeling his hip tightened up, according to manager Joe Girardi per MLB.com.

Yankees CF Ellsbury keys Thursday defeat of Detroit
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) The Yankees managed just three hits Thursday in Detroit, but the offensive work of leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsbury earned them a victory.
Ellsbury reached base three times and scored both their runs. He walked, stole a base and scored on a balk in the sixth, then doubled and scored in the eighth. He has scored 13 runs in 15 games this season.
|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.
