Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting in second game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner isn't in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Gardner started in center field for the afternoon portion of Saturday's doubleheader and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Mike Tauchman is starting in left field for the second game, batting seventh.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner will not start Friday against the Rays.

Rays starter Blake Snell is just the third southpaw the Yankees have faced in their first 13 games. Gardner hasn't been in the lineup against any of them, though it will be fellow lefty Mike Tauchman filling in for him in left field this time around rather than Miguel Andujar, who started there in the Yankees' two previous games against left-handers this season.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to Philadelphia in the first game of a doubleheader.

Gardner's homer -- a 368-foot blast to right field in the second inning -- was his second in as many games. The veteran has only four hits in 23 at-bats this season, but three of those hits have left the park. That has helped him drive in five runs despite batting a meager .174.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Gardner will head to the bench for the second half of Wednesday's twin bill after going 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an extra run scored in the team's Game 1 loss. Miguel Andujar is starting in left field and hitting ninth in his stead.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Swats rare homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Gardner took Philadelphia starter Jake Arrieta deep in the third inning to stake the Yankees to a lead that they did not relinquish. Per Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, the blast was only the second opposite-field homer of Gardner's 13-year major-league career. The 36-year-old has two homers this season but is slashing a meek .105/.261/.421.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

The 36-year-old will sit for the second time in five days in what amounts to a rest day. Miguel Andujar will pick up a start in left field in place of Gardner, who is off to a 1-for-16 start to the season at the dish.

August 1, 2020 04:36 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks against Boston on Friday.

Gardner entered the game having failed to register a hit in his first 11 at-bats of the season. He broke the dry spell in the eighth inning with a two-run shot to right field off Boston reliever Colten Brewer. After hitting a career-high 28 long balls in 2019, Gardner could again serve as a decent source of power this season, though he's unlikely to hit for a high batting average.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles.

Gardner, who is 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts this season, will retreat to the bench Thursday with left-hander John Means starting for the opposition. In his place, Miguel Andujar is starting in left field and hitting ninth.

July 26, 2020 08:52 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: On bench versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Gardner is 0-for-6 with three strikeouts and a walk through the first two games of the season, and he'll take a seat Sunday with southpaw Patrick Corbin on the mound for Washington. Miguel Andujar is starting in left field and batting seventh for the series finale.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Starting role in flux
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner's status as the starter in center field could depend on when the regular season begins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Prior to the suspension of play, Gardner was a lock to roam center field on Opening Day. While the potential returns of Giancarlo Stanton (calf) and Aaron Judge (rib) won't affect Gardner's starting job, the 36-year-old could be challenged by Aaron Hicks (elbow) if the start of the season is pushed back to June or July. Hicks is recovering from Tommy John surgery but has started a throwing program in Arizona, per Hoch.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Returns to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner agreed to a one-year, $12.5 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Gardner posted a career-best .828 OPS, 28 home runs and 74 RBI in 2019, and he will return to the team that he has been with his entire career in 2020. The 36-year-old could see a good amount of playing time, especially with Aaron Hicks' (elbow) status uncertain heading into next season.

Brett Gardner: In talks with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner and the Yankees are discussing a potential new contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 36-year-old has been with the Yankees since 2008, and while the team has an abundance of outfielders, injuries plagued the group last year. If he would return to the Bronx, Gardner could see a good amount of playing time in order to alleviate the workload of others, especially with Aaron Hicks (elbow) expected to miss most of the season. Gardner had a career-high 28 home runs and 74 RBI with 10 stolen bases over 141 games last season.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Cranks 28th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another run scored in a win over the Rangers on Friday.

Gardner gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead with a homer off Joe Palumbo in the fourth inning. He now has 28 home runs and 86 runs scored this season while batting .253/.327/.507.

September 24, 2019 04:44 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Gardner has started the past 10 games, slashing .333/.395/.718 with four home runs and 11 RBI during that stretch. Cameron Maybin is starting in center field and hitting seventh in this one.

September 23, 2019 10:28 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Goes deep in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's win over Toronto.

Gardner drove a ball over the right field wall in the first inning to plate three runs. The home run was his ninth through 19 games in September and 27th overall this season, surpassing the season high he previously set two years ago. Gardner has been a key contributor in an injury-marred season for the Yankees, slashing .254/.330/.507 with 84 runs scored and 72 RBI in 136 games.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Pops 26th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, three runs scored and three RBI to help the Yankees to a 9-1 victory over the Angels on Thursday.

Gardner continues to swing a hot bat, as he's now hit safely in seven out of his last eight games, with four multi-hit efforts, five homers and 11 RBI to his name over that stretch. The veteran outfielder's .254 batting average is pedestrian, but he's managed a solid season at the dish overall at age 36, posting an .838 OPS in 134 games. He's also swiped 10 bases in 12 attempts.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Smashes two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in a 13-3 victory against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

At 36, Gardner is showcasing power like never before in his career. He has a new career-high 25 homers and a .500 slugging percentage, which is more than .100 points higher than his career slugging percentage. He's not the same on the bases, but Gardner has reached 10 steals for the seventh straight season, and with one more RBI, he will have a new career best in that category as well. He's batting .248 with 57 extra-base hits, 66 RBI, 79 runs and 10 steals in 452 at-bats this season.

September 12, 2019 10:36 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Clint Frazier starts in left field while Cameron Maybin slides over to center. Look for Gardner to be back in the fold for Game 2.

September 11, 2019 03:48 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner will not start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Gardner has hit five homers over his last eight games, an uncharacteristic display of power from the veteran whose 23 home runs this season represent a career high. Cameron Maybin will start in center field in his absence.

September 11, 2019 10:16 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sets new career high in homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI on Tuesday against the Orioles.

Gardner homered in each of the first two innings -- both came off Edwin Jackson -- to bring his season total to 23. That's the highest single-season mark in his 12-year career, and he could post a slugging percentage over .500 for the first time as well. While certainly aided by the current hitting environment, his campaign has been impressive nonetheless, as he's also chipped in 10 stolen bases and scored 76 runs across 127 games.
