Latest Update Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 and belted his 15th home run of the season in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday. Tue Sep, 09, 11:16 PM
A top athlete with supreme instincts on the basepaths, he's a constant steals threat. Very fast, he can run down almost anything in the outfield. Gets on base consistently thanks to a great eye, a sweet swing and patience. Also boasts some power.
Flaws: : Doesn't have much of a throwing arm from the outfield. Durability has been questioned at times in his career, as he's already endured some injury issues. Could stand to be a more consistent hitter against left-handed pitching.
This has been a very solid first season in New York for Ellsbury and he added to his numbers on Tuesday. He doesn't have great run or RBI totals, but his counting statistics are lovely.Analyst: David Kerr
Despite a nice showing on Saturday, Ellsbury is just 2-for-19 (.105 BA) with two RBI and three runs scored over his last five games. Overall he has had a solid first season with the Yankees, slashing .281/.341/.430 with 14 home runs, 66 RBI, 67 runs scored and 37 stolen bases, so hopefully he will be able to snap out of his recent funk to finish the season on a high note for his loyal fantasy owners.

Ellsbury is still considered day-to-day with an ankle injury but at least his light jogging signifies that it's not a high-ankle sprain and he should be back soon enough.Analyst: Howard Bender
Ellsbury is still dealing with a sprained ankle and will miss another game here. Brett Gardner will bat leadoff and player center field in his stead.Analyst: Howard Bender
