Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury not playing

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:54:19 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will receive the start in the outfield. Young may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore since he has only received five at-bats this season.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury likely to play Wednesday

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:16:12 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) has been penciled in to play for the big league squad Wednesday, April 1, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should have time to shake off the rust before opening day. He remains an early-round pick in standard leagues, however, waiting to use him in FantasyScore contests would be a prudent decision.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury on track for opener

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 14:38:02 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) said he's feeling good and expects to play in a major league spring game soon. Ellsbury said he will be fine for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) hasn't played in a spring game since early March. He dealt with an injury last spring but came out of the gates hot in 2014, giving owners optimism that he could do something similar this year. However, being safe and holding off on Ellsbury in the opening week at FantasyScore makes sense.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury could play Tuesday

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:00:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) could play in a minor league game Tuesday, March 31, after missing two weeks with an oblique strain.

Fantasy Tip: If Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) comes through fine this week while playing in spring games, he should be ready to go on opening day. However, after missing two weeks of spring training at-bats, there's a chance Ellsbury will be slow out of the gates. You may want to wait and see with him in the first week of the regular season at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury swinging Thursday

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:42:28 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) will take swings during soft toss Thursday, March 26, and he thinks it'll be a good test to see if he can be ready for opening day. He hasn't played in a game since March 15 due to a right oblique strain that the team is calling "extremely mild." If Ellsbury can play in a game by March 31, he should be ready for opening day, according to manager Joe Girardi. Ellsbury has also been doing sprints, playing catch and swinging a broomstick.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks are being extremely cautious with Ellsbury because of the nature of his injury. It remains to be seen if he'll be ready for opening day, but unless he suffers a setback, his draft value shouldn't change. You may want to be cautious in using Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) at FantasyScore right out of the gates, though.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury likely to be ready

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:42:03 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) is making progress and will likely be ready for opening day, according to manager Joe Girardi. "He did some light broomstick swings (Monday)," Girardi said of the center fielder, who is out with a strained right oblique injury. "He is progressing great. As long as he is in (a game) by next Tuesday, I feel that we are going to be OK."

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Ellsbury won't miss much time at all to start the season, but oblique injuries are tricky, so he's not out of the woods just yet. With that said, Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) might be a shaky FantasyScore commodity during the first week if he needs to be rested.

Yankees | No timetable for Jacoby Ellsbury

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 12:19:33 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) still does not have a timetable for resuming baseball activities, and if he has not begun them by Monday, March 30, the season opener would be in jeopardy, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) continues to say the right things, and it is unlikely he misses any length of time, if any. However, in the short term, he could be a risky FantasyScore play in the first week of the season. Continue to check back for updates leading into opening day. Ellsbury remains a high-end outfield option in seasonal leagues due to his ability to help in every category, and he is an especially strong source of stolen bases.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury improving

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 11:22:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) thinks his strained right oblique is improving, and he's confident he'll be able to play on opening day. He hasn't played a spring game since March 15, and he said the next step will be to resume hitting and throwing. Ellsbury hit .271 with 16 home runs, 70 RBI and 39 steals in 149 games in 2014. He was hitting .222 (6-for-27) with a triple and an RBI in nine spring games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury has been known to be a slow healer, so there are no assurances that he'll be ready to go on opening day. However, if he's in the lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays on opening day, he should be in consideration for a FantasyScore roster spot at $5,900 (11.8% of cap).

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury confident for opening day

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 16:25:23 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) said he is very confident he will be ready for opening day Thursday, March 19. Ellsbury noted he feels a lot better already and he will take a few days and see how he feels then.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Ellsbury to be reading for opening day, unless he suffers a setback. He profiles as a rare five-category contributor and is worth targeting in the early middle rounds, at the latest. This injury, along with his past health issues, may deflate his fantasy stock slightly making him a better bargain if he slips in drafts. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and return timeline.
