Yankees' Brett Gardner slugs fourth homer Monday vs. Royals
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner went 2 for 4 with a walk, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in his team's 14-1 win over the Royals on Monday.
Gardner opened the first inning with a double and was immediately driven home by a two-run Chase Headley homer. The Yankees added a second homer later in the inning and had two men aboard when Gardner came to the plate for the second time in the first frame. He connected for his fourth home run of the season to give the Yankees an 8-0 lead before three outs could be recorded.
Gardner has hit .285/.364/.438 with four home runs, 19 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 144 at-bats.
Brett Gardner, Carlos Beltran batting 1-2 Wednesday for Yankees
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) 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.

Yankees LF Brett Gardner returns to starting lineup Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles. Gardner, who missed Wednesday's game due to a stiff neck, will hit second in manager Joe Girardi's batting order.
Chris Young will start the game on the bench Thursday after getting the start on Wednesday.
|2014 summary: As the Yankees' primary leadoff hitter, Brett Gardner posted his fourth season with at least 80 runs and 20 steals within the last five years. In his seventh major league season, Gardner did something new for Fantasy owners: hit double-digit home runs. The extra power, in the form of 17 homers, helped Gardner to drive in a career-high 58 runs and finish as a top 30 outfielder for the first time since 2011.|
Playing time status: Gardner's 141 starts in the outfield last season were a career high, and he stands to get at least as much playing time this season.
2015 outlook: Gardner's power burst gave him enough production to serve ably as a No. 2 outfielder in standard mixed leagues, but between his track record and the fact that he wasn't hitting flies any farther than he had in previous seasons, it's best not to count on a repeat performance. He's not a big-time base-stealer anymore either, so Gardner is not a lock to be among the 40 most productive outfielders in 2015. It could be a reach to take him before the middle-to-late rounds.
