Brett Gardner spoiled Steven Wright's potential shutout on Sunday night, launching a solo homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.

It was Gardner's lone hit in four at-bats and one of only three hits for the Yankees as a club. With the 1-for-4 effort, he's now hitting .239/.364/.380 with three homers, seven RBI and five stolen bases on the season.
May 8 - 10:42 PM

Brett Gardner (elbow) is back in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Gardner didn't start Thursday after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch Wednesday, but he's fine. The Yankees also have Ronald Torreyes at third base over Chase Headley.
May 6 - 4:54 PM

Brett Gardner (elbow) hopes to be back in the lineup on Friday.

Gardner didn't start Thursday after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch Wednesday, although he did appear as a pinch-runner and stole a base. "I’d say it’s about the same," said Gardner. "I was able to sleep in kind of an awkward position and keep it elevated for the most part most of the night, so I think that helped out."
May 6 - 10:07 AM

After being hit on the right elbow by a pitch in Wednesday's win over the Orioles, Brett Gardner's X-rays came back negative.

Gardner was plunked on the elbow in the top of the eighth inning. It actually resulted in an RBI for the run-hungry Yankees, as the bases were loaded at the time. He would stay in the game before being lifted for defensive replacement Dustin Ackley in the ninth. After the win, manager Joe Girardi said that the speedy outfielder was "pretty sore." Consider him day-to-day moving forward unless the Yankees indicate otherwise.
May 4 - 10:41 PM

Brett Gardner smacked a walk-off solo home run in the ninth inning on Saturday, propelling the Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Rays.

Gardner's heroics came off Rays reliever Erasmo Ramirez who was in his second inning of work. He also singled twice in the contest, finishing the day 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI. Gardner also put his wheels on display, swiping his third base of the season.
Apr 23 - 4:43 PM

Brett Gardner (neck) pinch-hit and remained in Thursday's game versus the Athletics.

Gardner walked as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning, stayed in to play left field and then struck out in the eighth. He didn't start the last two games due to a stick neck, but he's expected back in the lineup Friday.
Apr 22 - 8:25 AM

Brett Gardner (neck) is not in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the Athletics.

Gardner was also absent from Wednesday's lineup. Aaron Hicks will fill in at left field and bat seventh. Manager Joe Girardi said Gardner is available off the bench, which suggests he should be back in the starting nine Friday against Tampa Bay. Girardi said he wanted to stack the lineup with right-handers against southpaw Rich Hill.
Apr 21 - 4:00 PM

Brett Gardner (neck) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's.

Aaron Hicks replaces Gardner in left field and is batting ninth. Starlin Castro shifts up to bat second in Gardner's usual place. Consider the speedy outfielder day-to-day. He has some mild neck stiffness.
Apr 20 - 4:48 PM

Brett Gardner connected for his first home run of the season Friday against the Mariners.

It was a solo shot off Nate Karns, which turned out to be the only offense of the game for New York. Not only was it Gardner's first home run, it was also his first extra-base hit of the season. Gardner also singled and drew two walks Friday, so fantasy owners will have to hope that he’s starting to turn the corner.
Apr 15 - 11:30 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and batting second Wednesday night against Toronto lefty J.A. Happ.
Apr 13 - 3:45 PM

Brett Gardner will not be in the Yankees' Opening Day lineup Tuesday versus the Astros.

Houston is throwing tough left-hander Dallas Keuchel, so Gardner will shift to a bench role. Aaron Hicks, a switch-hitter, will start in left field for New York.
Apr 4 - 9:58 AM

Brett Gardner blasted a solo home run as the Yankees topped the Marlins 3-2 in Grapefruit League action on Friday.

Gardner also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the day 1-for-2. His long ball impressively came off Marlins ace Jose Fernandez and got the Yankees on the board in the fourth inning. He appears to be over the wrist injury that plagued him in the second half of 2015 and he's poised for a big year hitting second in the Bombers powerful lineup.
Apr 2 - 12:45 AM

Brett Gardner went 2-for-4 with a triple Friday against the Orioles.

Gardner is 5-for-18 since returning from his wrist injury. Health permitting, he'll be the Yankees' regular No. 2 hitter this year. The Bombers badly need him to play like he did in the first half of 2015, rather than the second half.
Mar 25 - 4:41 PM

Brett Gardner (wrist) will make his Grapefruit League debut on Wednesday.

Gardner is expected to take three at-bats. The Yankees have been taking it easy with the 32-year-old this spring due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but there's still enough time for him to get ready for Opening Day if he can avoid a setback.
