Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury says he'll be ready
New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (calf) had six plate appearances in a minor league game Tuesday, March 25, and said he should be ready for opening day next week. "I feel like I could just hop right in there and play right now and be ready to go," Ellsbury said. "I'll take advantage of these next four games and do everything I can to be ready for opening day. I feel I will be ready. I don't anticipate anything other than that." Ellsbury didn't play the field and didn't run hard, however. He hadn't played in a spring game since March 14 due to right calf tightness.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Ellsbury to be in the opening day lineup unless he suffers a setback this week. But right now, everything is looking just fine.
