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
Carlos Gonzalez (knee) was removed from Friday's game for precautionary reasons.
To borrow one from Adam Carolla: Sssssssssssssssssssssshocking. Gonzalez has managed just 717 plate appearances combined in the last two years, and fantasy owners are all too familiar with his health woes. When healthy in the last two seasons, he's struck out a fair bit more than he ever has before, so we can longer treat CarGo as a top option when healthy. There's definitely upside, but it's hard to imagine him reaching it. Analysis: Brett Talley
