ELLSBURY OFF AND RUNNING: Pretty positive news about Jacoby Ellsbury came out of batting practice today. Ellsbury hit on the field and ran around the bases. [5] Sounds like he might be available in some capacity today.

ZEROES TO HEROES: The Yankees have been shut out six times in 2014. They are 3-2 this season and 12-5 since the start of 2013 in games immediately following a shutout loss. The Yankees?have gone 38-14 (.731) in such games since 2008 when Joe Girardi took over as manager.

MORE THAN THREE OUTS: Dave Robertson has four saves of more than one inning, tying St. Louis’ Trevor Rosenthal for the most such saves in the Majors this season according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Elias also notes that Robertson has saved games this season for 16 different pitchers, setting a franchise record.
