Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury said the bruised nerve in his elbow injury is improving.
He will get treatment, stretch, and hit in the batting cage today, according to Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network.
Ellsbury, who injured the elbow while slamming into the outfield fence during Monday's game, has not played since.
The Yankees said at the time that they would give Ellsbury a few days of rest, but would place him on the disabled list if he wasn't ready to play by the time the team begins the road trip that starts today.
Ellsbury, 33, is hitting .282 with a .344 OBP and .412 SLG with three HR, two doubles, and nine RBI in 24 games this season.
