Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran batting 1-2 Wednesday for Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) The loss of Jacoby Ellsbury to a knee injury has the Yankees scrambling the top of their lineup for the Wednesday night game in Washington.

Brett Gardner is set to lead off for just the fourth time this season with Carlos Beltran batting in the second spot for only the second time in 2015.

Perhaps the move will jump-start Gardner, who followed a seven-game hitting streak with a 3-for-20 slide that has lowered his batting average under .300 for the first time since April 25.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays while dealing with a stiff neck, according to the New York Daily News.

Yankees Brett Gardner: Alex Rodriguez is 'all business'


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner isn't surprised by Alex Rodriguez's approach this season. 

"He’s been all business since he’s been back," Gardner said, per the Journal News. "Last year, obviously, was very, very tough for him, and tough for a lot of people, but I think ever since he’s come back he’s been all about working hard and trying to help the team win."

That's in keeping with what Gardner has seen from A-Rod in the time the two have been teammates. 

"I’ve had a chance over the last eight or nine years to really see behind the scenes and what goes into his preparation for the game, and the way that he works in the offseason. He doesn’t need to go out of his way to try to win me over," Gardner said. 


Yankees' OF Brett Gardner receives day off Wednesday


(4/29/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner received a day off and was held out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays. He had started each of the last six games for the Yankees.

Yankees OF Brett Gardner sits with poor history vs. David Price


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner received a breather Wednesday against the Tigers, as manager Joe Girardi opted to keep Chris Young in the lineup since he is doing well offensively. 

Gardner's history against Tigers starting pitcher David Price likely also played a role in Girardi's decision. He is just 3 for 22 (.136) with two RBI, four walks and five strikeouts in his career against the lefty.

Gardner is batting .333 (11 for 33) with one double, three RBI, four walks, five stolen bases and nine runs in his last nine games.


Yankees LF Gardner continues to run wild in Tuesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Gardner has five stolen bases in his last five games after stealing zero in the first six. He ripped off another one Tuesday night against host Detroit.

Of course, you can't steal first and Gardner has been getting on base. He contributed two singles, one walk and two runs to the victory over the Tigers and is 6-for-16 with five runs over the last four games.

Gardner has raised his batting average to .308, the first time it has been over .300 this year.

Yankees OF Brett Gardner hopeful he can play Saturday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) After taking a full batting-practice session Friday, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner said his bruised wrist is feeling better and he did not rule playing Saturday, reports MLB.com.

"If I don't get a chance to play [Friday], hopefully [Saturday]," Gardner said. "I hit in the cage and it felt pretty good."

Gardner has been out since Monday with a bruised right wrist after he was hit by a pitch. Manager Joe Girardi said he wants to see Gardner take more batting practice before putting him back in the lineup.

"My inclination is to give him one more day, but I want to see [batting practice] first," Girardi said. "He did take some swings off the tee and said he felt pretty good."


Yankees LF Brett Gardner absent from lineup again Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner (wrist) is out of the lineup for the third straight game Friday night at Tampa Bay. Chris Young has again taken his place.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Gardner took a pitch on the wrist on Monday, which led to further evaluation. He is hitting .261 (6 for 23) with three walks, a double, a home run, five runs scored and three RBI in six games. The Yankees have listed him as day to day moving forward, leaving him questionable for Friday's contest at Tampa Bay.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner didn't take batting practice before Wednesday's game but said that his injured wrist is feeling much better, NJ.com reports.

"I'm definitely happy it feels the way it does," Gardner said. "Headed in the right direction."

Gardner took a pitch on the wrist Monday, and subsequent X-rays were negative. Manager Joe Girardi is unsure if the outfielder will need an MRI.

"I'm hoping we don't have to," Girardi said about Gardner getting the MRI. "It would be more precautionary than anything, but we wanted to give him that option if he didn't feel any better."

Gardner is available to pinch run and play defense Wednesday. If he doesn't see enough progress in the wrist Thursday, the team may opt to send him for additional testing.


Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner out again Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Yankees' Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

Gardner is out of the lineup as expected after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch Monday. While he may be able to pinch run or serve as a defensive replacement Tuesday, he's unlikely to bat, the New York Daily News reports. Manager Joe Girardi hopes Gardner's ready to return to the starting lineup by Friday.

Rodriguez made his first start at third base Monday. With both players sidelined, Garrett Jones will bat sixth and DH, and Chris Young will bat seventh and man left field.

"You can't forget (that) it’s a long season," Joe Girardi said, per NJ.com. "When he's going good, you're going to want to keep him in there every day. That's how your guys get fatigued and that's how they end up injuring something in their leg. I have to guard against that. That's why I thought today was a great day to give him off."

The Yankees are underdogs (+110) against the Orioles Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Yankees' Gardner (wrist) day-to-day, unlikely to play Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is considered day-to-day after injuring his wrist Monday, but he's doubtful to play in Tuesday's game against the Orioles, MLB.com reports.

"Will he play (Tuesday)? That's the question," manager Joe Girardi said after Monday's game, per NJ.com. "We'll just have to wait and see how he feels. Yeah, I'm concerned about it. I'm glad it's not broke. But I don't know what we'll have the next few days."

Gardner was hit by a pitch in the first inning Monday but didn't come out of the game immediately, staying in to record an out on a bunt-single attempt to lead off the fourth inning. He was replaced by a pinch hitter, who delivered a grand slam, in the seventh inning.

Gardner has hit .261/.393/.435 with one home run, three RBI and five runs scored in 23 at-bats.

In addition to providing the Yankees' only run, Gardner's blast was one of just three Yankee hits on the day. 


A-Rod to likely hit 7th as DH in Yankees' Opening Day lineup


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/4/2015) Manager Joe Girardi hinted strongly on Saturday what the Yankees' Opening Day lineup will be and it will included Alex Rodriguez batting seventh as the designated hitter, reports ESPN New York.

4. Mark Teixeira, 1B

5. Brian McCann, C

Yankees' Brett Gardner jumps over wall to make catch Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner made a terrific catch Saturday, jumping over the outfield wall to make the play. Manager Joe Girardi was no fan of Gardner's effort in a spring training game.

"Oh, god, please don't get hurt," Girardi said of what he thought as the play happened. "I told him, 'Gardy, this isn't Little League. Don't do that again.'"

Gardner was unscathed after the play and thought Girardi overreacted a bit.

"I didn't think it was that big a deal," he said. "Everybody liked it, I thought. But whatever."

Gardner was planning on making a play like that at some point.

"Well, we've been working on pace of game in spring training, and Chris Young was like, 'You think I'm going to have to jump over there?,'" Gardner said. "So I said, 'If you're not going to, I am.' Otherwise, we're going to be waiting 10 minutes for someone to go all the way around and get your glove. We'd be in the eighth inning still if I didn't go get it."
