Brett Gardner suffers setback; out until at least All-Star break
Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner felt more pain in his right elbow this morning and will be sent to see a doctor on Monday.
Manager Joe Girardi said that he does not expect Gardner back until at least the All-Star break after this setback, his second since suffering a strain making an outfield catch in April. Girardi said that he cannot be sure exactly when the Yankees will get Gardner back. Gardner is going to see Dr. James Andrews early next week, as well as go for a second opinion from Dr. Timothy Kremchek.
“Something’s not right. He still feels stiffness,” Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. “He doesn’t feel right. … We’ll try to figure this thing out because we don’t have an answer to this.”
