Why Yankees sent Jacoby Ellsbury home from workout

Jacoby Ellsbury, who’s out battling a right oblique strain, left hip soreness and plantar fasciitis in his right heel, was sent home from workouts because he was sick Monday, Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

Ellsbury, making $21 million this year, played in just six spring training games and has been on the disabled list all regular season. He’s rehabilitating at the team’s player development complex in Tampa.

Odell Beckham Jr. ranked No. 77 on NFL Network’s top 100 players More Odell Beckham Jr. may be wanting to get paid like the top receiver in football and one of the NFL’s elites, but it seems his peers may not have him in that echelon at the moment. This is a far cry from where the Giants talented receiver ranked last season, when he was No. 8. The 2018 version of the ‘Top 100′ list is the eighth rendition, and it is compiled based on voting by NFL players. Beckham came in at No. 10 in 2016 and No. 32 in 2015.  Since entering the league in 2014, Beckham has been one of the most productive receivers in the NFL, racking up 4.424 yards and 38 touchdowns on 313 catches.

I just thought that if they were going to commit to Eli for another couple of years, and given the talent they have on offense and given the fact that he had almost completely rebuilt the offensive line it was a no-brainer to me, Accorsi said.

They can make a run. With that talent they have on offense, it’s explosive…. I just think it was an ideal pick. He’s a great player.

Accorsi was Giants’ assistant general manager from 1994-97 and general manager from 1998-2007. During that time, the Giants picked two running backs in the first round — Tyrone Wheatley and Ron Dayne — and both failed to live up to expectations.
