Player Notes
Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) will take batting practice on the field Saturday.

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.

Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) is expected to resume playing in exhibition games around March 31.

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.

Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) took dry swings, ran, and played catch on Wednesday in Yankees camp.

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.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) is "progressing great" from his mild right oblique strain.

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.

Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) said Thursday that he's "fully confident" that he will be ready on Opening Day.

Advice: Ellsbury was shut down for seven days after an MRI on Wednesday revealed a mild oblique strain. These injuries are notoriously tricky, so Opening Day is no guarantee, but he still has about two and a half weeks to heal and get ready. It could be close.
