— Player Notes
Advice: Ellsbury missed two weeks because of an oblique strain. Aside from his injury, it's been a very quiet spring for the Yankees' starting outfielders. Ellsbury is hitting .200 with one extra-base hit and no walks in 30 at-bats, Brett Gardner is hitting .167 with one extra-base hit in 54 at-bats and Carlos Beltran is hitting .243 with two extra-base hits in 37 at-bats. None of those four extra-base hits have been homers.7 hours ago Rotoworld
Advice: Ellsbury was given clearance to play in "real" games after going 2-for-5 at the plate in a minor league contest on Tuesday. It will be his first game since March 15, but there's no concern that Ellsbury won't be ready for Opening Day. "I've listened to them the entire process," Ellsbury said. "If they feel, 'Hey, you're a go for tomorrow,' I'll be out there tomorrow. If they're like, 'Hey, get some swings in and be out there the next day,' I'm fine with that too."

Advice: Ellsbury's been battling an oblique injury since the middle of March, but he's making strides in his recovery and feels he'll be ready to start on Opening Day. On Friday, he took indoor BP. The next step for Ellsbury will be a major league spring game. He looks like he's on track for the team's opener, barring a setback in the next few days.

Advice: It will come after he took indoor BP on Friday. Ellsbury has been sidelined since March 15 with a right oblique strain, but he's expected to be ready for Opening Day as long as he can avoid a setback. The 31-year-old center fielder is batting .222/.222/.296 with one RBI over 27 plate appearances this spring.

Advice: That would hopefully give him ample time to get properly tuned up for Opening Day. Ellsbury has been sidelined since March 15 with a right oblique strain, but he was able to take dry swings and play catch on Wednesday and he's scheduled to hit some soft toss on Thursday. The 31-year-old center fielder batted .271/.328/.419 with 16 home runs and 39 stolen bases in 2014 -- his first season with the Yankees.

Advice: Ellsbury has been sidelined since March 15 with a right oblique strain, but it's thought to be mild and he should be ready for Opening Day. The dynamic center fielder batted .271/.328/.419 with 16 home runs and 39 stolen bases in his first season with the Yankees and he's capable of even better in his second.

Advice: Ellsbury hasn't played since March 15, but the Yankees continue to express confidence that he'll be ready for Opening Day. He was running sprints in the outfield Tuesday, which is a good sign, but it's not clear when he'll return to game action.
