The New York Yankees are filing a grievance against Jacoby Ellsbury in order to recoup some of the $26 million still contractually owed to the outfielder, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

After releasing the 36-year-old on Wednesday, the Yankees will reportedly pursue restitution because Ellsbury used an outside facility during his rehabilitation from multiple injuries that have kept him off the field since 2017.

Since signing a seven-year, $153-million contract prior to the 2014 season, Ellsbury has appeared in 520 games, hitting .264/.330/.386 with 39 homers and 102 stolen bases.

Ellsbury was initially placed on the injured list with a concussion in May 2017. He then suffered multiple other injuries, including a right oblique strain and a left hip injury, the latter of which required surgery.
