Player Profile : Jacoby Ellsbury
Ellsbury played well in his first season with the Yankees. His home run totaled increased and his stolen base total decreased. Ellsbury had huge hot and cold streaks that shaped his numbers. Ellsbury brought a lot of speed to the outfield and he stole 39 bases. Ellsbury batted 271. Ellsbury hit 1st or 3rd for most of the season. He was very productive last year but I think he will be even better in his second year. The lineup should be better and he should be more comfortable. The Yankees have not said were he will bat in the lineup. Expect Ellsbury to be the Yankees best player.
