TAMPA— New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has been scratched from the starting lineup against Toronto due to a mild right abdominal strain.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Ellsbury will not play Tuesday and Wednesday, then will be evaluated Thursday. He didn’t rule out Ellsbury missing up to a week.
Girardi says that he’s “not too concerned” about the injury.
Ellsbury was examined by a team doctor Tuesday.
