Gardner was involved in a scary collision at first base last Wednesday, but he played all three games over the weekend against the Cardinals and will get a breather Monday. Aaron Hicks will draw the start in left field and bat second against Derek Holland. He's an interesting option in daily leagues.

Gardner left Wednesday's game after running into Rickie Weeks' shoulder at first base in the bottom of the sixth inning. He's been diagnosed with a bruised neck and jaw.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that there are no current plans to put Brett Gardner (neck, jaw) through concussion tests.

Gardner ran into Rickie Weeks in the sixth inning of Wednesday's game against the Rays, with both players hitting the ground and subsequently being pulled from action. The Yankees have passed along that Gardner suffered a bruised neck and jaw during the collision. Girardi has termed him day-to-day moving forward and said that it is not believed that Gardner will need a stint on the disabled list. He will be reevaluated on Thursday.

Brett Gardner was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Rays due to a bruised neck and jaw.

In a very scary looking play, Gardner collided with Rickie Weeks at first base while hustling out a grounder in the sixth inning. Both players were pulled from the game after staying down for several moments. Even if Gardner avoided serious injury -- stay tuned -- the Yankees figure to give him a day or two off to rest up.

Brett Gardner was removed from Wednesday's game against the Rays after a nasty collision at first base with Rickie Weeks.

Gardner took a shoulder to the neck and upper chest as he arrived at the first base bag and landed on the ground hard. He laid there for a couple of minutes before eventually walking off under his own power. Ronald Torreyes came on to pinch-run. Look for an update soon from Yankee Stadium. Weeks also left the game.

Brett Gardner is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Yankees in Friday's game against the Orioles.

Manager Joe Girardi has rolled out the exact same lineup for the first four games of the season. Gardner has three hits in his first 11 at-bats.
Apr 7 - 3:55 PM

Brett Gardner went 0-for-4 on Friday, lowering his spring average to .194.

Gardner is 7-for-36 with just one extra-base hit and one walk to date. He's 33 and his OPS has declined three straight years, though those were very, very modest declines the first two years. We're not optimistic about him as a mixed-league outfielder this season.

According to Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star, the Blue Jays have considered a number of alternatives to re-signing Jose Bautista including trading for Brett Gardner.

Gardner is known to be available but this is the first time we've seen him linked to the Blue Jays. Teams usually aren't keen on trading important players to division titles, so Gardner heading north would probably be a long shot. If Gardner does end up in Toronto, it would be the first time the two sides have traded with each other since 2002. Garner hit .261 with seven homers, 41 RBI and 16 steals over 148 games in 2016.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Wednesday at the Winter Meetings that he would not be afraid to trade Brett Gardner within the American League East.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter expressed some doubt about that earlier, but it all comes down to the return package for the rapidly-rebuilding Yanks. If the price is right, they'll go ahead and flip Gardner. The 33-year-old outfielder is under contract for $12 million in 2017 and $11 million in 2018 with a $12.5 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for 2019.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Orioles are seen as a possible fit in a Brett Gardner trade.

The Orioles are looking into a host of options for their lineup, both on the free agent and trade front. While Gardner would be a nice fit as a possible leadoff man in Baltimore, Heyman writes that they would want their division rivals to cover some of his remaining salary. The 33-year-old is owed $12 million in 2017, $11 million in 2018, and there's a $2 million buyout on his $12.5 million club option for 2019. Those aren't unreasonable terms, so the Yankees can probably do better if they are truly shopping him.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that he has received interest in Brett Gardner.

The Yankees are listening, but nothing sounds imminent. "He's here not because I can't move him; he's here because I'm not comfortable moving him, or haven't been satisfied in my asks that would make me move him," said Cashman. "You're going through the process, and you see if that changes. So far to this point, I've said no to a lot of different concepts thrown my way on it." Gardner is still under contract for two years at $26 million.
