You can use the below command..
ylh=ylabel('ylabel'); % adding ylabelto figure
ylh.Position(1)=ylh.Position(1)-dy; % you can change 'dy' according to your need. dy=+ve, will move the label from y axis. dy=-ve , will move the label closer to the axis.

Are you using R2015a or earlier? That would be important information to know for the purposes of this question !!
