Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Friday night against the Angels.

It would have been a premium matchup against soft-tossing right-hander Jered Weaver, but Gardner will sit this one out. He has been battling a right ankle injury in recent days and is also losing playing time to the exciting youth movement going on in New York.

Brett Gardner (ankle) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Aug 17 - 10:36 AM

Gardner has now missed four straight starts with a sore right ankle. He remains day-to-day. Aaron Hicks will start in his place again in left field.
Aug 16 - 3:43 PM

Brett Gardner (ankle) is out again on Monday.

Gardner fouled a ball off his ankle Friday and still isn't ready to return to the lineup. Aaron Hicks will start in left field and bat ninth against R.A. Dickey.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Gardner and Brian McCann out of the lineup, Chase Headley will slot into the two-hole with Didi Gregorius batting third. While BvP isn't a widely respected predictor of future success, Headley has just four hits (all singles) off Dickey in 23 PAs over his career, and Headley has never been much of a DFS option as it is. Gregorius on the other hand has crushed RHP at home this season (.259 ISO) and should be treated as an elite punt play at SS.
Aug 15 - 4:05 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Saturday that Brett Gardner (ankle) could be sidelined for several days.

Gardner fouled a ball off his ankle Friday and will sit out a second straight game Sunday. "Gardy is really sore," manager Joe Girardi said. "He got hit on top of the ankle. It’s swollen. It’s got seam marks. It’s sore." Aaron Hicks has garnered two straight starts in left field with Gardner on the shelf.

Aug 9 - 11:27 PM

Brett Gardner is not in Monday's lineup versus the Astros.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Dallas Keuchel. Rob Refsynder will start in left field and bat second.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Gardner, Alex Rodriguez and Brian McCann are all out of the lineup for the Yankees tonight. The Yankees don’t strike out much against southpaws (17.1%), but that’s about the only thing they have going for them in this match-up. They own the 4th worst wOBA (.304) and 3rd worst ISO (.127) against LHP and have been one of the poorest offenses on the road this season. Keuchel is still very good at keeping the ball on the ground (56.8 GB%) and has pitched much better in his home park over the last two seasons. He's allowed just a .293 wOBA to opposing hitters at home this year with a very respectable 4.6 Hd-Sft%, making him a viable target in any format.
Jul 25 - 5:01 PM

Brett Gardner went 2-for-3 with his sixth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gardner hit a solo shot off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez, a lefty, in the third inning. The 32-year-old is having a bit of a down year with just six homers and 23 RBI, but he's got 50 runs scored hitting at or near the top of the Yankees lineup. Gardner is batting .257/.353/.363 overall.
Jul 16 - 9:01 PM

Brett Gardner went 2-for-5 with a double and a three-run triple in Saturday's win over the Indians.

Gardner has been heating up at the dish as of late, going 12-for-36 (.333) in his last eight games. That good stretch has his overall line up to .260/.356/.360 with 49 runs scored and 12 steals.
Jul 9 - 11:40 PM

Brett Gardner finished 4-for-6 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Jul 6 - 12:37 AM

Brett Gardner went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in the loss to the Padres on Friday.
