Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out with Jon Lester on the mound


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is on a tear, but he won't be able to continue it Friday night unless he pinch-hits. Joe Girardi has elected to sit him against Red Sox premier left-hander Jon Lester.

Gardner is on an eight-game winning streak during which he has 10 hits in 31 at-bats with five RBI. But he generally rests against Lester, against whom he has just two hits in 11 career at-bats.

Also sitting against Lester will be catcher Brian McCann, another left-handed stick. He is batting .167 this season.


Brett Gardner connects for 24th career HR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner connected for his first home run of the season Sunday at Toronto -- a two-run homer off Drew Hutchison in the fourth inning. It was just the 24th home run of Gardner's seven-year career.

Gardner has hit safely in four straight games after failing to record a hit in the opener and has an RBI in three straight games. He is batting .278 (5 for 18) with one home run and four RBI in five games. He also has stolen base in two straight games.


Brett Gardner front and center for exhibition game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is set to bat leadoff during the team's exhibition game Tuesday.

It's the first spring game of the season for the club. Gardner is one of the few regulars getting a start in the game. He recently signed a four-year extension with the club, so it might be a case of the team showing off its new signee. Gardner will likely be lifted after a few at-bats.

Last year, Gardner hit .273/.344/.416 in 539 at-bats.


Yankees award Brett Gardner with four-year extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Yankees and outfielder Brett Gardner agreed to a four-year, $52-million contract extension on Sunday, The Journal News reports. The deal begins in 2015 and includes a club option for a fifth year in 2019, which would pay him $12.5 million.

Gardner hit .273/.344/.416 in 539 at-bats last season.


Report: Brett Gardner close to signing four-year deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is close to signing a four-year, $52 million contract extension, according to YES Network. The deal includes a club option for a fifth year, which would pay Gardner $12.5 million.

Brett Gardner: I'm alright in left


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) The switch from center to left has not been difficult mentally or physically for Brett Gardner. The move was necessitated by the addition of Jacoby Ellsbury, who will take over in center for the Yankees.

"I feel comfortable over there," Gardner told MLB.com. "I told [Joe Girardi] I can play right too if he needs me to. I'll do whatever I'm needed to do to help the team win. ... Having (Ellsbury) over here makes us a better team. I'm happy to play alongside of him and learn from him, and he's obviously a really good baserunner. We're kind of the same type of player."

The signing of Ellsbury launched trade rumors involving Gardner. But those discussions, which included a possible swap with Cincinnati for second baseman Brandon Phillips, have died down.


Brett Gardner assured of a spot


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner was surprised when the team went out and signed Jacoby Ellsbury, but he's not worried about his job, according to the Star-Ledger.

Gardner spoke with manager Joe Girardi in late December, who told him he had a spot on the team, though it will likely be in left field. The team already has Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano and Ichiro Suzuki for four potential spots. After they signed Ellsbury, there was some speculation Gardner would be moved for a pitcher, but it never came to pass. While it's possible Gardner will be moved before the start of the season, it appears he'll play a big role if he remains with the club this year.


Yankees avoid arbitration with Brett Gardner


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Gardner, who is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2014 season, hit .273/.344/.416 with eight home runs, 52 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 539 at-bats last season.

Yankees president counting on Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/15/2013) Yankees team president Randy Levine told ESPN.com he wants to keep Brett Gardner on the team's roster for the coming season, even though reports have surfaced about potential trades involving him. Levine also said the team is planning as if Alex Rodriguez, who is appealing a 211-game suspension, will be in the opening day lineup.

Levine did not address recent reports regarding a Brandon Phillips-for-Gardner deal proposed by the Reds, instead commenting, "We get inquiries about every single one of our players all the time, [general manager Brian Cashman] listens, but there's no attempt here to trade or move Brett Gardner."

Levine also said there was money available to budget for Rodriguez's salary, but should he have to serve his suspension, the Yankees "always have contingencies."

Yankees will try to trade Ichiro Suzuki, not Brett Gardner


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/10/2013) CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees intend to keep Brett Gardner, even though they have recently added Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran to their outfield. To clear the outfield logjam, they will attempt to deal Ichiro Suzuki instead.
