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
