Jacoby Ellsbury in Hartford for rehab stint with Trenton Thunder; won’t play though

Yankees top prospect Justus Sheffield shines in 8-1 win over Yard Goats

(WTNH)–New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury will be spending a few days in Hartford. He’s on a rehab assignment with the Yanks Double A team– the Trenton Thunder–who are in town to open a series with the Yard Goats.

Ellsbury was out on the field this afternoon at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, stretching and working out. He will not be playing in any of the games in this series.

Ellsbury has been out with a concussion and neck sprain since May 25th.

On Tuesday night, the Thunder beat the Yard Goats 8-1 behind one of the Yankees top prospects. Lefty pitcher Justus Sheffield worked 6 innings, gave up one run and struck out eight to pick up the win.
