The New York Yankees who are currently in first place in the American League East division have activated their outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the disabled list on Wednesday. Ellsbury had been in a rehabilitation assignment with the Tampa Bay Yankees which is the High Class A minor league team of the parent club since June 30.

New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury returns to the starting lineup on Wednesday

New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury who had been on the disabled list since May 19 with sprain on his right knee has been activated to the Yankees 25 man roster.
Ellsbury had been playing baseball in a rehabilitation assignment with the High Class A Tampa Bay Yankees since June 29, 2015.
The Yankees will be hosting the Oakland Athletics in the second game of a three game series at Yankee Stadium in New York City.
It was unusual that Ellsbury had been recalled from the Tampa Bay Yankees since the majority of baseball players that are rehabilitation assignment due to injuries usually play for the Yankees AAA minor league team the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League.
Ellsbury was expected to miss at least six weeks of playing time with the New York Yankees due to his injury to his right knee. Even though Ellsbury's return to the starting lineup was seven weeks, the Yankees wanted to make sure he was fully healed from his injury to his right knee before he was activated to the starting lineup on Wednesday.
If Ellsbury can remain healthy for the remainder of the 2015 baseball season, the chances of the Yankees making the playoffs for the first time since the end of the 2012 baseball season will increase due to his presence in the starting lineup.
Ellsbury made his debut in the Major Leagues with the Boston Red Sox in 2007. Ellsbury singed a seven year contract with the New York Yankees on December 7. 2013 after he became a free agent after his contract with the Boston Red Sox expired at the end of the 2013 baseball season after he helped the Red Sox win their eighth World Series title in the history of their franchise.
