Girardi says plan is for Ellsbury to play in final spring game vs #Marlins, weather permitting, confident he is healthy #Yankees
— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) March 28, 2014
Giradi plans to have Ellsbury in the Opening Day lineup if today's game goes well. He's projected to be the leadoff hitter for the Yankees after signing a seven-year, $153 million contract in the winter. Ellsbury is not new to being injured, he's been hampered by injuries his entire career. A veteran of seven seasons in the majors, he's only played more than 75 games in a season four times. Stay tuned to Sports Injury Alert for any future updates on Ellsbury's condition.
