Yankees' Brett Gardner: On bench again

Gardner is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Gardner will sit for a second straight day following a string of 13 consecutive starts. There has been no report of any injury to this point, so it appears manager Aaron Boone is simply riding the hotter hands and giving the veteran outfielder an extended rest. Giancarlo Stanton will start in left field Wednesday, with Luke Voit at DH and Greg Bird covering first base.
