Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury will return to leadoff

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:52:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) went 2-for-13 in four rehab games with Class A Tampa and is likely to be activated from the disabled list in time for the game Wednesday, July 8. He will resume his old duties as the team's leadoff hitter and center fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be activated immediately and returned to starting lineups. In daily games, you may want to give him a day or two before trusting him. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Garrett Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) are likely to form a platoon in right field with Carlos Beltran (oblique) on the DL. Young and Jones are acceptable matchup plays on FantasyScore, with Young particularly attractive against left-handed pitchers.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury to return Wednesday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:21:38 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, July 8, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury's return this week will be welcomed by all of his fantasy owners. Immediately return him to your starting lineups. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should continue to see regular at-bats in the outfield with Carlos Beltran now on the DL. Young is an effective value weapon on FantasyScore because of his success against left-handed pitching.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury not back Friday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:21:23 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will not return Friday, July 3, as originally hoped. Ellsbury did not play in a rehab game Thursday, July 2, marking the second time in four minor-league games that he did not play.

Fantasy Tip: The team obviously believes Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is not ready yet. Keep an eye out for when he is activated and maybe wait one or two games after that as he may be slow to recover.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury ready to return

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:31:58 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will play one more rehab game Thursday, July 2, before the Yankees decide if he's ready to come off the disabled list. "He feels ready to go," general manager Brian Cashman said. "If it were 100% up to him, then he would be in the lineup on Friday."

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should immediately be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back. On FantasyScore, you may want to give him a game or two before trusting him back in your lineups. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is likely to go back to a fourth outfield role when Ellsbury returns, depending on the status of Carlos Beltran. Young can still be an effective value play against left-handed pitchers when he draws into the lineup, though.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury rests in rehab

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:53:31 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) did not play in his minor-league rehab game for Class A Tampa Tuesday, June 30, as he is dealing with "general fatigue," according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this changes the original plan for Ellsbury to return from the 15-day disabled list Friday. FantasyScore players will want to see him officially return and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury hitless in rehab

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:51:42 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) was hitless in three at-bats with a strikeout in a minor-league rehab game Monday, June 29, for Class A Tampa.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) might return Friday, but FantasyScore players should avoid him in all leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury could return Friday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:27:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will play rehab games for the next three days before being re-evaluated. He could return from the disabled list at the earliest Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back from the DL. However, you might want to play it safe with him initially on FantasyScore until he gets his legs back underneath him. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will lose valuable playing time when Ellsbury returns and will basically return to his role as the fourth outfielder and go back to mainly starting against lefties. He can still be very useful as a sleeper pick against certain lefties, as he has mashed southpaws this season.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 06:51:13 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is a midrange OF option on FantasyScore when he returns.

Yankees | Rehab assignment coming for Jacoby Ellsbury

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:42:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will work out in Houston Saturday, June 27, and he could start a rehab assignment Monday, June 29, and return to the Yankees late next week.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will continue to see most of the starts in the outfield with Ellsbury sidelined. Only consider Young a FantasyScore option against southpaws, though, as he has a line of .379/.438/.682 against lefties in 2015.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury coming along slowly

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:08:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is still not running at 100%, and there is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is known for being a notoriously slow healer, so you'll have to bite the fantasy bullet and remain patient. Chris Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has seen the biggest increase in playing time with Ellsbury injured. He's a stream option against lefties in FantasyScore with a .371/.435/.694 line against southpaws in 2015.
