Jacoby Ellsbury is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

Betts' catch helped save the day

BOSTON -- Of all the outfield catches Red Sox rookie Mookie Betts has made in his professional career, he said Friday night’s leaping grab on a Jacoby Ellsbury fly ball to the triangle in center ranked as the best he’s ever made. Too bad he could barely remember it after the game. “I don’t really remember what happened,” Betts said. “It just all happened at once -- then I hit the ground and saw the ball in my glove.

Jacoby Ellsbury: Jon Lester trade proves unpredictability of baseball business

As baseball players, Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury don’t have much in common. The way they’re built and their position on the field couldn’t make that more obvious. The former is a big, powerful starting pitcher known for his humble demeanor and his sneaky, game-changing ability on the mound. The latter is a speedy outfielder better known for his […]

Gardner a steal for the Yankees

NEW YORK -- There was plenty of head-scratching when the Yankees signed Brett Gardner to a four-year, $52 million contract extension back in February, just a couple months after they had signed Jacoby Ellsbury for the next seven years at $153 million. Among the heads being scratched was my own, I must admit. What did the Yankees need Gardner for, I reasoned, when they already had Ellsbury, who was the same type of player, only, according to the numbers, a little bit better?

Reds let one fall in front of them

NEW YORK (AP) — A miserable weekend for the Cincinnati Reds ended with an embarrassing gaffe.

Ellsbury solves Reds’ stud closer, then uses legs to help Yanks win

Jacoby Ellsbury manages to catch up to Aroldis Chapman's heat

The first three pitches Jacoby Ellsbury saw from Reds lefthander Aroldis Chapman came in at 100 mph. The next two reached 102. Three of the next four were at 101.

Ellsbury, McCann beat Chapman's heat

NEW YORK -- Aroldis Chapman is baseball’s premiere flamethrower, possessing a fastball that averages greater than 100 miles per hour. On Sunday, he threw nine pitches to Jacoby Ellsbury, which registered 100, 100, 100, 102, 102, 101, 101, 101 and 101 on the radar gun. But the $153 million man wasn’t intimidated by Chapman’s heat. Leading off the ninth inning of a tie game, Ellsbury stroked an opposite-field single off Chapman, setting the stage for the New York Yankees to complete a three-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds at Yankee Stadium.

Yankees 4, Reds 3: Two-out runs raise Mike Leake’s ire

NEW YORK (AP) — Two unexpected long balls from Brayan Pena were negated by one costly pitch from Mike Leake. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer off Leake, and the Cincinnati Reds couldn't muster much offense against starter David Phelps and the New York Yankees' bullpen in a 4-3 defeat yesterday night.

Rapid Reaction: Yankees 4, Reds 3

NEW YORK -- The Yankees (48-47) began the second half with a boost by their big free agent signings, Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann, who provided all the RBIs. Hitting the Els out of it: In the fifth, Ellsbury unlocked a 2-2 game with a two-run homer. It was his seventh of the year. Pitching in: David Phelps continues to pitch well. On Friday, he went 6 1/3, allowing three runs (two earned). He gave up two solo homers among his six hits.
