  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Cut by Yankees

    Ellsbury (foot) was released by the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Ellsbury hasn't seen game action since 2017 and the Yankees have been unable to provide any updates about his status for 2020, so it's not a major surprise to see the team opting to move on despite the associated cost. The 36-year-old was set to receive $21 million next season, and the move also requires a $5 million buyout. He originally signed a seven-year, $153 million deal in December 2013 and posted a .716 OPS in 520 games with New York. At this point it's unclear if Ellsbury will play professional baseball again, but he certainly won't be doing so for the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Status uncertain for next season

    Ellsbury (foot/hip) has an uncertain playing status for the 2020 season, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Ellsbury has not played since 2017, and general manager Brian Cashman said that he is "not in a position health wise" to know whether he will be an option for the team in 2020. The 36-year-old is unlikely to play for the Yankees again despite having one year remaining on his contract.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Will not play in 2019

    Ellsbury (foot/hip) has not resumed baseball activities and has no shot of playing this season, Randy Miller of NJ.com reports.

    Ellsbury worked out indoors Friday but has not progressed to baseball activities and will not return to the field this season. The 35-year-old has not played since 2017 and is unlikely to don a Yankees uniform again despite having one year remaining on his $153 million contract.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Slowly progressing

    Ellsbury (foot/hip) is moving toward full workouts, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    He has dealt with several injuries this year, including plantar fasciitis and most recently a hip issue that slowed him in his rehab. Ellsbury is without a timetable to return and has not yet progressed to baseball activities.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Not cleared for on-field work

    General manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that Ellsbury (foot) continues to rehab at the Yankees' spring-training faciltiy in Tampa but has yet to resume on-field work, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "He's still in the physical-therapy mode," Cashman said.

    The Yankees have provided few updates on Ellsbury's condition in the past few months and aren't realistically expecting him to contribute in 2019. Ellsbury, 35, hasn't appeared in even a minor-league rehab game since 2017 and has been written off as a sunk cost in the sixth season of his seven-year, $153 million deal. Stashing Ellsbury on the 60-day injured list will at least allow the Yankees to earn about 75 percent of his contract back via insurance as long as he remains idle.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Setback related to shoulder

    Ellsbury (foot) had his rehab program shut down in late April after he developed a shoulder injury, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Ellsbury is believed to be fully recovered from the left hip surgery he required last August, but he reported late to spring training after experiencing plantar fasciitis in his foot. He was able to do some light running shortly after arriving, but Ellsbury never received clearance for baseball activities after the shoulder issue interfered with his rehab. Now nearly 20 months removed from his last major-league action and with his rehab program on pause, Ellsbury appears unlikely to return from the 60-day injured list until after the All-Star break, if at all.

  • Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Setbacks in rehab

    Ellsbury (foot) has had "some things" pop up in his rehab in Tampa that haven't allowed him to progress to baseball activities, according to manager Aaron Boone, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    It doesn't sound like Ellsbury, who is already on the 60-day injured list, is anywhere close to returning. The Yankees have been hit hard by the injury bug in the early going, and will be giving opportunities to less proven players in the short term.
