Ellsbury to wear No. 22 with Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) - Jacoby Ellsbury will wear No. 22 with the Yankees, taking over the number of Roger Clemens, another Boston star who moved south to New York.
Ellsbury wore No. 2 with the Red Sox, but that belongs to Yankees captain Derek Jeter.
The outfielder agreed to a $153 million, seven-year contract Dec. 3, and the deal was completed four days later. He appeared at a Yankee Stadium news conference Friday.
A lefty-hitting leadoff man, the 30-year-old led the majors with 52 steals despite a broken foot late in the season. He finished with a .298 average, nine homers and 53 RBIs.
Ellsbury is part of a rebuilding plan by the Yankees, who lost All-Star second baseman to Seattle. New York also agreed to deals with catcher Brian McCann and outfielder Carlos Beltran.
