Ellsbury slams into the bullpen plexiglass attempting a catch. Hit his back and was down for an extra beat, but he remains in the game.
Girardi said Ellsbury isn't starting because of a sore back. Ellsbury crashed into CF fence trying to make a catch last night.

#Game162 starts NOW! @JacobyEllsbury digs in, and it’s time to play ball! #PinstripePride
NYY 16 pos. players: McCann, Murphy, Sanchez, Bird, Ack, Ref, Didi, Headley, Ryan, Beltran, Ellsbury, Gardy, Heathcott, Young, Noel & A-Rod.
My best guess on NYY starting lineup tonight: Ellsbury 8, Young 7, ARod DH, Beltran 9, McCann 2, Headley 5, Bird 3, Refsnyder 4, Gregorius 6
Young is 6-20 off Keuchel & must start. I thought Ellsbury would start, but Gardner sees 4.16 pitches PPA. Might be part of Girardi thinking

Why Gardner over Ellsbury? Girardi said it came down to Gardner's overall "body of work" vs LHP versus Ellsbury's.
