New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is expected to serve as the club's leadoff hitter in 2015, after spending much of the 2014 season batting third. "I felt comfortable batting third," he said. "Once the lineup spins through, it really doesn't matter. But coming up with runners in scoring position, I felt comfortable in those situations. If they hit me 3, or 1 or 2, Joe (Girardi) knows how I feel. I'll do anything."
Fantasy Tip: Due to Ellsbury's changing role in the Yankees' batting order, expect to see more stolen bases and fewer RBIs out of him in 2015. He is projected to be taken in the first three rounds of mixed league fantasy drafts.
