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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) 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

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.
