Gardner experiences setback

Gardner experiences setback

by Fishjam25

Brett Gardner had another setback in his rehab from an elbow strain.  Per ESPN, Joe Girardi says he will now be out until after the All-Star Break.  This is terrible news for the Yanks as they badly need all of his elite skills – defense, speed, hitting with RISP and ability to work pitchers.  I can’t say I am surprised and I am questioning why the Yanks let him play in Charleston yesterday after he scratched Thursday with stiffness in the elbow.  I’m beginning to doubt whether he will return this season at all and think the Yanks need to find a solution that is not on the current MLB team.  That could mean a trade or it could mean finally giving a shot to Ronnie Mustelier or Eduardo Nunez in LF/DH.
