Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday afternoon's win over the A's.

Gardner connected for a solo shot with one out in the first inning off of A's starter Jesse Chavez. The homer was Gardner's 10th, the RBI his 40th. He hit a career best 17 dingers in 2014, a number that he should come very close to again this season. Also in 2014, he set a career high for RBI at 58, which should fall by the wayside easily enough in the coming months. Gardner's currently hitting .303/.381/.490 in what's been a very nice all-around season.

He's on a seven-game hitting streak now and has logged multiple hits in eight of his last 11 games. Gardner is having a monster season with a .305/.377/.502 batting line with nine home runs, 39 RBI, 58 runs scored, and 15 stolen bases.

Brett Gardner went 2-for-5 and hit his sixth homer Thursday against the Marlins.

Gardner hasn't been a great OBP guy of late, but the power numbers are nice. He has five homers, two triples and 11 doubles in 43 games since the beginning of May. As a rookie in 2008, he played in 42 games and had no homers, two triples and five doubles. Needless to say, he's a changed hitter since then.

Brett Gardner ripped a three-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Angels.

Gardner didn't have any other hits on the day, but his blast down the right field line off of C.J. Wilson in the fifth inning just stayed fair and proved to be the deciding blow. The outfielder is proving that last season's 17-homer outburst isn't a fluke, as his five bombs this year now put him on pace for 14 in 2015.

Brett Gardner (neck) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday night versus the Orioles.

Gardner missed Wednesday's game because of a stiff neck. It clearly wasn't anything serious. Gardner is batting .309/.404/.444 with 18 runs scored in 23 games this season, and he'll hit second behind Jacoby Ellsbury in his return to action Thursday.

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

He's getting a breather against lefty Drew Smyly. Fellow left-handed swingers Brian McCann and Stephen Drew are also sitting, as the Yanks are going with Chris Young in left field, John Ryan Murphy at catcher and Gregorio Petit at second base.

Brett Gardner (wrist) appeared as a pinch runner in Friday's victory over the Rays.

He has been nursing a bone bruise in his right wrist and is expected to return to the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday. He certainly did his job on Friday after pinch-running for Carlos Beltran, Gardner swiped second base and scored the go-ahead run on an RBI single by Alex Rodriguez.

Brett Gardner (wrist) expects to return to the Yankees' lineup on Saturday.

There's an outside shot that he could even talk his way into Friday's lineup, as Gardner is taking full batting practice. But, it sounds like manager Joe Girardi wants to give him one more day before throwing him back out there Saturday. Chris Young will handle left field in Gardner's place Friday.
