Jacoby Ellsbury day-to-day with sore left hand

By

Joe Girardi announced this afternoon that Jacoby Ellsbury is day-to-day with a sore left hand. The hand has been bothering him for a few days but tests came back clean. He was scratched from tonight’s lineup and Girardi hopes he will play tomorrow.

Ellsbury broke a small bone in his left hand during Game Six of the World Series last year according to Peter Gammons, so this soreness is a concern only because of the recent fracture. Tests did not show structural damage though. Hopefully he’s back in the lineup tomorrow or the next day.

    you seem a lot less concerned about structural damage than I would’ve guessed. that seems like a big deal. structural damage likely means surgery down the line.

    • Steve (different one)

      Apologize if this said something different earlier, but it says NO structural damage was found. Yay?

      • Slugger27

        he mustve just changed it. guess it was a mistake earlier. that explains his indifference.

  • The Other Matt

    I was watching MLB Network just now and they had video of Joe Giradi saying Michael Pineda left a sim game in Tampa after one inning, due to tightness in his lat muscle.

      Already a thread on that.

    There’s no such thing as day-to-day with Ellsbury. It’s all or nothing. It’s month-to-month!

    More seriously, I wonder how many games they’ll get in here. I think tomorrow is a total washout, and not sure how heavy the rains will be tonight.

    • I’m One

      Right. This just shows he is actually injury prone. He’ll probably take 2 months to heal.

      (Sarcasm, in case you weren’t sure.)

  • Jorge Steinbrenner

    It’s also cold and windy as shit out there for late April. I’m sure that makes a sore hand feel great.

    I’m not concerned. For now.

    We should be grateful Pineda’s not pitching tonight. In this weather, he’d have come out looking like the Toxic Avenger.

      Toxie!
      Amazing that they actually made a cartoon series out of that Troma classic.

    • TWTR

      I was just to about to post that about the weather. Good point.

    • nycsportzfan

      Just seeing this thread for 1st time. Im gonna joing you in not worrying to much untill we know more.

    always with the negative waves, axisa.

    What the fuck is going today?

    Its like a flashback to 2013.

  • forensic

    Well, if Ellsbury’s gotta miss a game at least it’s for a pitcher that Ichiro of old did really well against. Now we just gotta hope that old Ichiro does really well against him too.

  • Jersey Joe

    Okay.

    Stay calm, stay calm.

    (Heavy breathing)

    I’M STAYING CALM! THIS IS NOT A BIG DEAL! NO, YOU’RE MAKING IT A BIG DEAL!

  • pinedamaybegreata(formerlyMonterowasdinero)

    Bryce Harper went from “soreness” in his thumb to being out for 2+ months.

    Fingers crossed on Ells

  • CapitalT

    I’d hate to see the number of injuries if they had actually played a game yesterday

  • Macho Man “Randy Levine”

    The sky is falling, yea. Outside interference, yea. The Macho Man “Randy Levine” is not happy with the team’s conditioning, yea. I’m going to have to head down into the clubhouse and start firing worthless trainers and strength coaches, yea. And believe me when I say that the Macho Man “Randy Levine” will not tolerate any excuses. Ooooooh yeaaaaaaahhhhh! Dig it!
