Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) eyeing March 31 return
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who ran, took dry swings and played catch Wednesday, is targeting a return to exhibition play on March 31, according to MLB.com.
Ellsbury is scheduled take tee and flip on Thursday, while he works his way back from an oblique injury. He has been sidelined March 15 due to the issue, but remains unconcerned about his Opening Day status.
"I can still get in quite a few games, and that would be great," Ellsbury said. "Today is a nice little step in the right direction in the sense of swinging. I feel pretty confident that I'll definitely be in the Opening Day lineup."

Yankees' Joe Girardi: Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) is 'progressing great'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is "progressing great" from his mild right oblique strain, according to MLB.com. Ellsbury has been sidelined since March 15 with the injury. He tested his oblique by running sprints in the outfield on Tuesday. At this point, it remains unclear when he'll return to the lineup.
Yankees' Ellsbury sounding confident about being ready by opener
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury sounded Monday he is confident he will be ready by Opening Day, per MLB.com. He added his strained right oblique is improving.
Ellsbury has not played since March 15, when he was injured while tossing in the outfield before a spring game against the Phillies.
"I guess all I can tell is just how I feel each and every day," Ellsbury said. "But until I swing a bat, until I throw, until I do really explosive stuff, that will be the real test. But it does feel better each and every day."
Ellsbury missed the final two weeks of spring training last year due to a calf strain, but he was ready by Opening Day and went on to lead New York with 156 hits in 2014.
"Coming into the season, I felt pretty good," Ellsbury said. "I got some at-bats across the street [in minor-league games]. I felt pretty good. I felt like I was seeing the ball, tracking pitches, and I felt pretty good a couple of days ago in the games with that. Hopefully, I should get some at-bats before we break."
|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.
