Insight: Ellsbury (.284, 1 HR, 14 RBI, 21 runs, 11 SB) will be replaced by Zoilo Almonte, but hopes to be back for Sunday's doubleheader. Alomonte holds little fantasy value.

Insight: Manager Joe Girardi has previously said tests revealed no structural damage. Ellsbury is off to a fine start, batting .312 with 14 runs scored, 11 RBI and eight steals. We always worry about injuries, however, as he's missed a lot of time over his career.

As long as you don't expect him to put up his 2011 level of production (.321, 32 HR, 105 RBI, 119 runs, 39 SB) you should be satisfied with his results to date.

Insight: Ellsbury is doing exactly what the Yankees brought him in to do. He's batting .367, stealing bases (8) and playing excellent defense in center field. He'll certainly be a confident hitter when he steps into the box on Saturday and so should fantasy owners when they start him.

Insight: He's dealing with some calf tightness. Ellsbury (.298, 9 HR, 53 RBI, 52 SB for Boston in 2013) has a reputation for being fragile, though this injury seems pretty minor. Hopefully he'll be back later in the week.
