Jacoby Ellsbury released by Yankees

The Yankees released Jacoby Ellsbury.

Fantasy Impact

Ellsbury has dealt with a plethora of injuries in recent years and hasn't appeared for the Yankees since 2017. The seven-year, $153 million contract he signed following the 2013 season has simply been a massive bust. The 36-year-old could sign with another team but it's highly likely we have seen the last of him.

Jacoby Ellsbury (hip, foot) resuming baseball activities

Jacoby Ellsbury (hip, foot) reported to Yankee camp and took his physical on Sunday. He will now resume baseball activities.

Fantasy Impact

Ellsbury missed all of 2018 and had hip surgery in August. He has since dealt with plantar fasciitis and it's unclear if the Yankees expect him to contribute at all this year. The former speedster was signed to a seven-year, $153 million contract following the 2013 season.

Jacoby Ellsbury may not play baseball this season

Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) said Monday that he hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities and doesn't know when that date will come. The outfielder reiterated that returning this season is "still the plan" but understands time is running out on the 2018 campaign, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports.

Fantasy Impact

If there is a fantasy owner keeping Ellsbury stashed with a hope that he returns and contributes to the Yankees this season it may be time to move on. Ellsbury is no longer fantasy relevant.

Jacoby Ellsbury has yet to resume baseball activites

Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique, foot, hip) has yet to resume baseball activities. Ellsbury has been battling oblique, hip, and foot ailments this season which have kept him out of action all year.

Fantasy Impact

There is no current timetable for a return for Ellsbury who could be out for awhile. If fantasy owners are holding onto the veteran outfielder they may want to move on as it does not look like Ellsbury will provide an impact this season.

Jacoby Ellsbury resumes baseball activities

Jacoby Ellsbury has resumed baseball-related activities, but he's yet to return to the field. He's sidelined by plantar fasciitis.

Fantasy Impact

Ellsbury has yet to make his debut, as he's dealt with a number of different injuries. He's unlikely to take on a major role even when he's healthy given the other outfield options the Yankees have available.
