Here are a few injury notes prior to tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays
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 is once again out of the lineup due to a sore back. Headley and the Yankees are currently unsure of his return.
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.
