As expected today the Yankees welcomed Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Miller back from the disabled list after they both missed extended time with injuries.

Ellsbury is starting in center field and leading off tonight against the A’s after being sidelined since mid-May with a sprained right knee.

Miller has been out for a month with a strained forearm, but manager Joe Girardi indicated Tuesday that he’ll jump right back into the closer role and push Dellin Betances into his usual setup role.

New York sits atop the AL East with a 44-39 record and now the Yankees are getting healthy.
