Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left hip to repair a torn labrum on Monday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan and went as expected, the Yanks said on Tuesday.
The typical recovery time frame to resume full competition following this procedure is approximately six months.
The 34-year-old is under contract for the next two years at a little more than $21 million a season, making Ellsbury the third-highest-paid player on the Yankees behind Giancarlo Stanton and Masahiro Tanaka.
New York has a $5 million buyout option for 2021. Ellsbury signed a seven-year, $153 million contract with the Yanks as a free agent in December 2013.
Ellsbury last played in a Major League game on Oct. 17, 2017, the fourth game of the American League Championship Series against the Astros. He hit .264/.348/.402 with seven homers, 39 RBIs, 22 stolen bases and 65 runs scored in 112 games last year. Ellsbury is a career .284 hitter with 1,376 hits, 104 home runs and 512 RBIs over 11 big league seasons. He's hit .264 with 39 homers, 198 RBIs and 102 stolen bases in 520 games for the Yankees.
