Brian Cashman didn't commit to this fully, but said today it could be possible Jacoby Ellsbury begins the season on the DL due to his setbacks from plantar fasciitis.

He/team feel it's better for him to stay out there for now. Ellsbury recently had a cortisone injection that's also slowed his progression.

When Danny Farquhar walked into the news conference room at Steinbrenner Field just now he excitedly blurted out: "This is so cool!" He went on to later add: "Just to think 10 months ago that I would be here, you don't know. And I am extraordinarily just thankful."
