FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Jacoby Ellsbury (hand) is in the Yankees' lineup on Thursday.

Ellsbury sat out Tuesday with the sore hand and the rainout Wednesday offered him up a nice second day off without missing any time. He'll return to the top of the Yankees lineup, business as usual. Though he's never faced Mariners lefty Roenis Elias, Ellsbury is batting .410 with five doubles and two triples in 39 at-bats against southpaws this year.ANALYST: Howard Bender
