Ellsbury & Miller Return Tonight!

"We're back, baby!"

Tonight, the Yankees will welcome back two important members to the team.

After missing 43 games with a freak knee injury, Jacoby Ellsbury will make his return to the Yankees lineup. While the team has actually scored more runs per game without Jacoby (4.80 vs. 4.38), the offense certainly will be stronger with their leadoff hitter.

While Dellin Betances has filled in admirably as the team's closer, Andrew Miller will also return from the disabled list after suffering a strained forearm muscle. The bullpen has done pretty well in Miller's absence, but just like the offense will get stronger with Ellsbury back, the Yankee bullpen just got a whole lot stronger.

Unfortunately, these two returns mean that two men will return to the minor leagues. 

Ramon Flores, who started off pretty well but fell hard back to Earth, was optioned. Joining him will be Nick Rumbelow (sorry Daniel), who has done well in his short stint, but with Adam Warren joining the bullpen he doesn't really have a roll.
