"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."

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."

Yankees looking to bat Ellsbury, Gardner atop lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi could use outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner in the first two spots of the lineup regularly in 2015, MLB.com reports.

"It's definitely a possibility," Girardi said. "I think that both of them are capable of leading off. Ells has done it a little more in his career than Gardy, but I just kind of like the combination of those two guys together."

The Yankees slotted the two outfielders atop the team's first Grapefruit League lineup Tuesday afternoon. With the retirement of shortstop Derek Jeter leaving the second slot open, Ellsbury and Gardner have the opportunity to show what they can do back-to-back.

"We'll take a look at it a lot this spring as we try to keep the outfielders together a lot early on and the infielders together, just to see how it works," Girardi said. "Left-handed, right-handed, in my mind right now, I'm not really worried either way."

The two outfielders combined for 60 stolen bases in 2014, and Girardi indicated that he'd like to see the pair continue to pressure opposing pitchers.
