FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: JACOBY ELLSBURY (ANKLE) OUT AGAIN SUNDAY

New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the lineup again on Sunday due to the ankle he injured at the end of last week.  Manager Joe Girardi had said on Saturday that Ellsbury's ankle, injured during a home-plate collision, could possibly have required a DL stint if rosters had not expanded.  Ellsbury however maintains that he can gut through the pain and return as soon as allowed.

Analysis:  Very tough call here for the Yankees as Ellsbury has a long history of injuries and is signed for six more years which means weighing risk is imperative with this.  Even if Ellsbury does return, his stolen bases could be compromised due to the ankle.  Overall though Ellsbury has returned terrific numbers this season and up until now had finally remained healthy.  He remains an outfielder 1.
