Here are a few injury notes prior to tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays

Jacoby Ellsbury

Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the lineup for the second straight game but the Yankees believe he will be a pinch-hitter for them. Joe Girardi wants to see Ellsbury run before putting him back in the starting lineup.

Chase Headley

Chase Headley is once again out of the lineup due to a sore back. Headley and the Yankees are currently unsure of his return.

Aaron Hicks

The Yankees have announced they have reinstated Aaron Hicks from the 15-day disabled list. Hicks is in the lineup tonight, batting second and playing right field.

    This has nothing to do with the current article, but Billy Butler might be a nice guy to have around especially with Oakland virtually paying his whole salary, backup first baseman and Dh and pinch hitting. Only 31 why not? You need some veterans.

    Butler is hitting good for us but he may be a late winter decision.First, do they move BMc and free up some DH time.What happens with Austin?Hicks, Judge,Ref ??Twenty five guys, 12-13 pitchers,those extra spots have some competition and if he does well, we'll have competition to sign him.Off season decisions, interesting

      I would trade Brian McCann. He's been pretty much horrible this year. Long stretches of strike outs and pop ups. He does try to hit the other way on occasion but just not enough. We have a lot of catching depth. Let's use it and let him go. Try to get something of value for him over the winter.

    I was not pleased to see Solano at third and Refsnyder on the bench. Why not Torreyes at third and Refsnyder at 2B and Solano on the bench?

    Ref is a nice player, potentially, but clearly won't get a chance. On this time, Ref has the ability to be patient while in a slump and walk and hit singles / doubles when he hits. Many Yankees right now can't take pitches or walk or force pitchers into hitter's counts.

      I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if the Yankees traded Refsnyder during the offseason. The Yankees won’t really give him a spot on the team but he deserves a chance, so maybe someone else will give him a shot.
