Jacoby Ellsbury's future seems resigned to the Yankees' bench.

He's "pretty excited" for it, though, according to his agent, Scott Boras, at Day 3 of the 207 MLB Winter Meetings at the Walt Disney Swan & Dolphin Resort on Wednesday.

"Right now he's pretty excited. Talked to him yesterday. He feels he's going to be a major part of what they're doing," Boras told reporters. "I think there's going to be a competition in New York. They have a lot of diamonds in their jewelry store, no question about it. It's going to be a very healthy environment and Jacoby has done a lot of big things in a lot of big situations in a lot of big cities, so competition does not in any way do anything but exhilarate him."
