Brett Gardner is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Red Sox.

He'll take a seat against Boston ace Chris Sale. Neil Walker is hitting leadoff while Shane Robinson will make the start in center field.
Apr 10 - 4:07 PM

Brett Gardner reached base four times on Saturday, leading the Yankees in an 8-3 victory over the Orioles.

Gardner singled, doubled and drew a pair of walks, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 with a run scored. He got the Yankees on the board in the second inning with a two-out, two-run single off of Chris Tillman. Even with the strong day though, Gardner is still hitting just .222/.349/.361 through his first nine games.
Apr 7 - 4:29 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

It looks to be nothing more than a routine day off for the veteran left fielder. Billy McKinney will start in his place in left field while Aaron Judge mans center and Giancarlo Stanton handles right field.
Mar 31 - 12:01 PM

Brett Gardner hit a solo homer and scored two runs in the Yankees' Opening Day win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Gardner reached on a fielding error in the top of the first and came around to score on Giancarlo Stanton's first home run as a member of the Yankees. Gardner then showed a little muscle of his own in the top of the seventh, going yard to right off Danny Barnes. The veteran outfielder quietly put up a career-high 21 home runs in 2017 along with 23 stolen bases. Even if there is some regression in his age-34 campaign, he has a nice fantasy floor as the Yankees' primary leadoff man.
Mar 29 - 7:16 PM

Brett Gardner went 0-for-3 on Tuesday and is still looking for his first extra-base hit of the spring.

He's batting .227 in 22 at-bats. Gardner probably can't lose his stranglehold on the leadoff spot this spring, but it would be interesting to see if the Yankees would try Aaron Hicks there if Gardner slumps during the regular season. While Gardner was a fine leadoff man last year, hitting .264/.350/.428, Hicks did outproduce him overall, coming in at .266/.372/.475 in 88 games.
Mar 13 - 4:07 PM

Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in a Game 5 ALDS victory over the Indians on Wednesday.

Gardner and Didi Gregorius combined for six of the Yankees' eight hits, or 75 percent if you're into that sort of thing. Gregorius provided the pop, but Gardner had arguably the biggest hit of the night. In the top of the ninth facing Cody Allen, he fouled off several tough pitches, and on the 12th pitch of the at-bat he lined a two-run single to give the Yankees a 5-2 lead that Cleveland wasn't going to come back from. The Yankees are loaded in young talent, but veterans who grind out plate appearances like Gardner does are a key reason why they're going to be playing in the ALCS starting Friday.

Brett Gardner went 1-for-4 with a double as the Yankees found a way to stave off elimination and defeat the Indians on Sunday.

Gardner was a spark plug atop the Bombers' lineup in the regular season, but has struggled to the tune of just .188/.278/.438 so far in the postseason.

Brett Gardner (shoulder) returned to the Yankees' starting lineup on Saturday.

Gardner was removed from Wednesday's game after being hit by a pitch and hadn't returned since. He's batting leadoff against Joe Biagini and the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Brett Gardner (shoulder) is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Gardner left Wednesday's game after being hit on the shoulder by a pitch, and he's obviously still sore. He should be back in there Saturday. Clint Frazier is in left field. Greg Bird is also sitting out Friday in favor of Chase Headley, who will cover first base.

Brett Gardner is hoping to be in the Yankees' lineup Friday after exiting Wednesday's game versus the Twins following a hit by pitch on the shoulder.

Gardner said after the game that "it could be worse" and that he might have remained in the contest had the score been closer. However, manager Joe Girardi admitted that "there’s some concern there" regarding Gardner's shoulder. We'll find out soon if he'll give it a go.

Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Gardner doubled in a run in the second inning off of Jose Berrios and then knocked Berrios out of the game with an RBI single in the fourth. He later reached on a infield single in the seventh and stole a base but was thrown out at home on a fielder's choice. Gardner's 23 pilfers this season is his highest total in four years.
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 11:56:00 PM

Brett Gardner finished with three hits and two steals Monday against the Twins.

Gardner locked up his first 20 HR-20 SB season with a steal yesterday, and he just kept running today. He was a lot more power than speed earlier this year, but since the beginning of August, he has nine steals and just one homer in 182 at-bats.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 10:46:00 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday versus the Orioles.

Gardner went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Rays, but he'll take a seat Thursday versus Orioles left-hander Wade Miley. Clint Frazier is starting in left field and batting ninth. Starlin Castro is also on the bench for New York.

Brett Gardner finished 2-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

Gardner contributed a two-run single to the Yankees' three-run second inning and then added another single in the top of the ninth. The veteran outfielder is slashing .260/.348/.424 with 20 home runs, 58 RBI, 19 stolen bases, and 88 runs scored in 138 games this season.
