TAMPA , Fla. (AP) — but when that will be is not clear.“It’s hard to say,” the 35-year-old New York Yankees center fielder said Monday. “We’re putting a plan together right now. But definitely headed in the right direction.”Ellsbury reported more than a month late to spring training due to a rehab program in Arizona for left hip surgery performed last August. He also had issues with plantar fasciitis in the right foot during the offseason.“The hip’s good,” Ellsbury said. “After surgery, just building up right now. Just in the beginning stages of baseball activities.”He is running, playing short-range catch and hitting off a tee.Ellsbury hurt his right oblique early in spring training last year and eventually spent the entire season on the disabled list.“You want to be out there, for sure ,” Ellsbury said. “That’s why I put in the time, put in the work. You want to contribute, you want to be part of the team. Stay optimistic and just put the work in.”Ellsbury is guaranteed $21,142,857 annually through 2020 as part of a $153 million, seven-year contract that includes a $21 million team option for 2021 with a $5 million buyout.Ellsbury hit .264 with seven homers and 39 RBIs in 112 games in 2017. GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — All-Star second baseman Scooter Gennett will miss the opening months of the season with a severe groin strain , costing the Cincinnati Reds one of their top hitters less than a week before opening day.Gennett injured the right side of his groin Friday while making a play on a groundball hit by Milwaukee’s Yasmani Grandal. He had an MRI, and the Reds said Saturday that he’s expected to miss two to three months.“He is in a lot of pain,” said manager David Bell, who was with Gennett when the medical staff read his MRI. “He wants to play so bad. That makes it tough, but he’s already thinking positive.”The injury forces the Reds to rearrange their infield — which had been one set area of the team — heading into the season opener Thursday against Pittsburgh at Great American Ball Park. Bell plans to move shortstop Jose Peraza to second base and use newcomer Jose Iglesias at shortstop.The injury is unlikely to alter the team’s plan to start top prospect Nick Senzel at Triple-A. Senzel has played second and third base in the minors but focused mostly on center field this spring.Peraza has played second, a major factor in Bell’s decision. The Reds signed Iglesias to a minor league deal on Feb. 23, giving them depth at shortstop.“Peraza will continue to play some shortstop Ivan Rodriguez Jersey ,” Bell said. “We still see him as a shortstop. There were concerns about moving him back to second because he worked so hard at shortstop, but the willingness of him to move made it an easy conversation.”The Reds overhauled their outfield and their starting rotation through a series of offseason trades, but the infield had been set with Joey Votto at first, Gennett at second, Peraza at shortstop and Eugenio Suarez at third.Gennett’s injury is a significant setback to the offense.The Reds claimed Gennett off waivers from the Brewers a day before they broke camp for the 2017 season. Gennett adjusted his swing and had a career year. He became the first major leaguer to have four homers, five hits and 10 RBIs in a game. He also led the majors with four grand slams, joining Lou Gehrig as the only players with a four-homer game and a four-grand slam season.Last season , he became an All-Star for the first time. His ninth-inning, pinch-hit homer sent the All-Star Game to extra innings. Gennett finished second to Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich for the batting crown with a .310 average.In the last two years, Gennett has 50 homers and 189 RBIs, joining Dave Parker and Deron Johnson as the only Reds to put up such numbers in their first two seasons with Cincinnati.After making $5.7 million last season, he avoided arbitration and settled for a one-year deal for $9,775,000. Gennett Prince Fielder Jersey , who turns 29 in May, is a free agent after this season. He’d like to stay in Cincinnati, but the Reds haven’t been interested in discussing a long-term deal.
