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. Dec 7 - 8:50 PM

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.
Dec 7 - 8:34 AM

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.

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.
Aug 19 - 7:10 PM

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

He will start in left field and bat leadoff against Toronto left-hander J.A. Happ. Gardner had missed four straight starts because of a right ankle injury.
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. 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 14 - 10:01 AM

Brett Gardner went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

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. 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.

With the Yankees trailing in the sixth inning, Gardner swatted a Dan Otero offering the other way to plate three runs, his first triple of the year. 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.
