Brett Gardner Likely Out for Season
The New York Yankees found out that Left Fielder Brett Gardner will need surgery on his right elbow likely ending his season. He will be going for surgery on Thursday with Dr. Christopher Ahmad.
Brett hasn’t played since April 17th against the Minnesota Twins when he hurt his elbow diving for a ball. Gardner tried to come back with a few rehab starts but was always hurting afterwards leading to him getting a MRI.
"It's unfortunate," Girardi said. "We missed some of the things he brings to our club."
Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones have been playing great filling in for Gardner, as they both have 12 homeruns and a combined 66 RBIs for the year. The production from Ibanez, and Jones it would seem unlikely for Brian Cashman to make a major move before the trade deadline.
