Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) scratched from rehab game


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was scratched from the Tampa Yankees's lineup on Thursday, as he temporarily put the brakes on his rehab assignment. Ellsbury, who is recovering from a sprained knee, was able to play in the field on Wednesday after being rested on Tuesday.

Despite being scratched, the Yankees aren't overly worried about Ellsbury's progress, the New York Post reports.

"He is going through a spring-training-game-like-progression with all the sprints, and … slowly getting his legs back. All good," general manager Brian Cashman said. "We will see him soon after we finish him off properly."

Ellsbury will not be activated on Friday, according to ESPN.com. There is currently no updated timetable for his return to the big club.

Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) remains without timetable


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) It's been a little more than a month since Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has been on the shelf with a knee sprain. Yet he still does not have a date for a minor-league rehab assignment.

"He's still not there yet," manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "We need to get him to run 100 percent before we feel comfortable sending him out on a short rehab."

Ellsbury has not played since May 19, the game in which he injured his knee by getting his spikes caught in the batter's box in Washington, DC. The Yankees want Ellsbury to be able to run without limitations before starting his rehab assignment.

"You want to see him turn it loose, be able to feel good the next day and say there are no issues," Girardi said. "What you don't want is where you could take maybe three more days as opposed to a guy going out and getting hurt again, then you're back to square one, in a sense. We just have to make sure he's ready."

The recent development was duly noted by Joe Girardi, who had said Tuesday that Ellsbury was not ready to run and that his progress remained slower than what the club would have liked.

"I thought he looked better," Girardi said. "He used his spikes when he hit in the dirt today and that's how he got hurt. So I thought he swung the bat well. I thought he ran a lot better. He's definitely progressing the way we want."

Ellsbury boasted a slash line of .324/.412/.372 before going down.

Ellsbury is on the disabled list with a knee sprain and he said it's progressing nicely.

"It hasn't slowed anything down, and I've been told that's natural," Ellsbury said. "That's nothing that's an eye-opener or anything that the doc didn't say would happen. Even with that, it's still progressing according to the rehab program."

Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) could be out another month


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/26/2015) It looks like the Yankees might be without center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury a while longer. Ellsbury, who is on the disabled list with a knee sprain, could be out another month with the injury, reports the Star Ledger. At the very least, he will most likely not be ready to return when first eligible.

Ellsbury had been one of the team's most productive hitters before hitting the DL. He had hit .324/.412/.372 with one home run, six RBI and 14 stolen bases in 148 at-bats. 

"That's not easy to replace," Girardi said. "I would hope we would have him within a month. That would be my hope. I can't tell you that we will."

Slade Heathcott and Chris Young will continue to share the playing time in center field while Ellsbury is out. 


Yankees' Girardi still has no timetable for Jacoby Ellsbury's return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) 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

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.

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.
