    • General manager Brian Cashman said Ellsbury will likely be the Yankees' fourth outfielder next season, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Cashman said Ellbsbury will still compete for an outfield spot, but that the team is basically set on starting Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge from left to right across the outfield. This isn't all too surprising, as Ellsbury didn't start a single postseason game in the outfield. The 34-year-old was still effective last season, hitting .264/.348/.402 with seven homers and 22 stolen bases in 112 games, and could earn a starting job elsewhere if he decides to waive his no-trade clause.

    • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Not starting Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ellsbury is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. After starting four consecutive games, over which he went 6-for-13 (.462) while drawing four walks, Ellsbury will have the day off. With Ellsbury sitting out Sunday, Brett Gardner will move to center field while Clint Frazier heads to left.

    • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Stays hot in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ellsbury went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Rays. Ellsbury saw an increase in playing time when both Aaron Hicks and Clint Frazier hit the disabled list, and even though the latter is back, Ellsbury's red-hot September has forced manager Joe Girardi to keep his bat in the lineup. The 34-year-old is hitting .412 with a .524 OBP in 12 games this month, so he figures to continue being a regular fixture in the Yankees' lineup down the final stretch of the season.

    • Ellsbury will start in center field and bat ninth Sunday against the Red Sox. With Aaron Hicks succumbing to another oblique injury that resulted in his placement on the disabled list earlier Sunday, Ellsbury looks poised to reclaim an everyday role since he had been the team's only healthy outfielder on the bench. The prospect of regular at-bats should give Ellsbury some appeal in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues where available, but those banking on the 33-year-old to return to vintage form should temper expectations. He's suffering through one of the worst seasons of his career in 2017, contributing a .245/.321/.387 line over 307 plate appearances.

    • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Playing time on decline
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ellsbury is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The injury to Matt Holliday (back) had opened up more frequent starts for Ellsbury earlier in August, but with Tyler Austin having since settling as the Yankees' primary designated hitter, the 33-year-old has seen his at-bats take a significant hit. Ellsbury will be on the bench for a fifth consecutive game Tuesday.
