News: Ellsbury (ankle) pinch hit during Sunday's game, but will still undergo an MRI on his sprained left ankle, ESPN New York reports. Impact: Ellsbury seemed fine after his brief appearance, but was replaced for a pinch runner after reaching base. The Yankees have the day off Monday, so he may be able to return to the lineup Tuesday if nothing unexpected shows up on the MRI.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury (ankle) took batting practice and ran the bases prior to Sunday's game, Jack Curry of YES Network reports. Impact: Ellsbury will be held out of the lineup Sunday, but he reportedly didn't look to be favoring his ankle while taking part in the pregame activities, suggesting he could be available off the bench. The Yankees could exercise caution and deem Ellsbury unusable in the final game of the series, but with an open date in the schedule Monday, there's a good chance the center fielder will be cleared to resume regular duties Tuesday against the Red Sox.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury (ankle) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Ellsbury's absence for a second straight game comes as little surprise after manager Joe Girardi said Saturday night that he'd be "shocked" if the outfielder were able to play the next day. To cover for Ellsbury's absence, the Yankees will move Brett Gardner over to center field, with Zelous Wheeler joining the lineup as the left fielder. The Yankees hope to have Ellsbury back in time for Tuesday's series opener with the Red Sox.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury is not in the Yankees' lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays because of a sore left ankle. Impact: Ellsbury was injured when he slid into Toronto catcher Dioner Navarro in the ninth inning of New York's 6-3 win Friday. Home plate umpire Mike Everitt initially ruled Ellsbury safe, but the call was overturned on review. Ellsbury remained in the game in the bottom half. X-rays afterward were negative.(STATS, 3:59pm)

News: Manager Joe Girardi said after Saturday's loss in Toronto that he'd be "shocked" if Ellsbury was able to play Sunday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Ellsbury initially injured his left ankle in the ninth inning Friday during a slide into home plate, which kept him out Saturday and likely Sunday as well. With an off day Monday, Girardi appears to be hoping that three days of rest is enough time for Ellsbury to assume regular duty in center field and the leadoff spot Tuesday versus the Red Sox.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury (ankle) isn't in the starting lineup Saturday, Jack Curry of YES Network reports. Impact: Brett Gardner will lead off and play center field Saturday in Ellsbury's absence.

News: Ellsbury hurt his left ankle in Friday's game while sliding into home during the ninth inning. He underwent further tests after the game, and the results came back negative, Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News reports. Impact: Ellsbury should be considered day-to-day, but he was spotted with his ankle wrapped following the test and sporting a noticeable limp. The tests Friday night were performed with a fluoroscope, so it's unclear if the Yankees will want Ellsbury to undergo any further tests. He logged his 14th home run in the game, and added a triple to continue his red-hot hitting. Ellsbury has been a huge catalyst in the Yankees' surge so they have to hope this is nothing that will cost him time going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury (general soreness) is back in the lineup Monday in Kansas City, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Impact: Ellsbury's beat-up body was slated to receive a day off Sunday, but instead, he entered in the seventh inning to cover center, which he'll handle Monday as well. He's put together a productive seven-game stretch, during which he's hit .370 (10-for-27) with three RBI, two runs scored, and four stolen bases.(RotoWire, )

News: Ellsbury shined for the Yankees on Monday, going 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI. Impact: Ellsbury has been hitting the ball well lately, collecting 14 hits in his last 32 at-bats.

News: Manager Joe Girardi acknowledged Ellsbury is "pretty beat up," MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. As a result, Ellsbury will be held out of Sunday's lineup against the White Sox. Impact: The combination of Ellsbury's general body soreness and left-hander Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox were enough to convince manager Joe Girardi to give his $153 million outfielder a day off. Whatever physical issue Ellsbury is dealing with doesn't seem to be overly severe, making him a relatively-safe play during the upcoming week's slate of games.(RotoWire, )
