Ellsbury has been sidelined since May 20, and Miller has been out since June 10. Closer Andrew Miller will be returning to the Yankees on Wednesday, July 8. The other half of the “Two Headed Monster”, Dellin Betances, leads all Major League Baseball relievers with 68 punch-outs of his own.
The New York Yankees activated center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury and left-handed closer Andrew Miller from the disabled list Wednesday. Getting him back will certainly help the bullpen a lot. For the New York Yankees it’s typically a busy period for such speculation because the club is generally in the playoff hunt and like any team they’re looking for upgrades, plus they have cash on hand to take on costly contracts. 324 with a. 412 on-base percentage and 15 steals, but only one home run and four doubles. He had not registered a blown save and had 43 strikeouts over 26 1/3 innings pitched. Brett Gardner has done a fantastic job in Ellsbury’s place atop the Yankees’ lineup, but it was the one-two punch being delivered nearly nightly that sparked the Yankees earlier this season. He was on a recent roll, going 3-1 with a 1.53 ERA over his last five starts.
Flores made an immediate impact when he first joined the Yankees during that Oakland series at the very end of May, but ultimately his offensive numbers are unimpressive – a team-worst.
