Yankees' Brett Gardner: Facing job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner will compete for the starting left-field job in spring training with Clint Frazier, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

A mainstay in the New York lineup since 2008, Gardner saw his role reduced late last season following the acquisition of Andrew McCutchen. While McCutchen has since moved on to Philadelphia, Gardner, who re-signed with the team on a one-year deal after the Yankees declined his 2019 club option, faces a new challenger for his post in left field. Given that Frazier missed a large chunk of 2018 due to concussion symptoms, the Yankees may prefer him to make up for the lost time by picking up regular at-bats at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to begin the campaign, but Gardner will probably first need to restore some confidence in his abilities this spring. Gardner posted a .690 OPS in 2018, his worst showing in the category since his debut season (.582).

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Chance to claim starting job in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Cashman said Gardner will have a chance to reclaim the starting job in left field during spring training, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Gardner is coming off one of his worst statistical seasons of his career, as the veteran outfielder hit just .236/.322/.368 with 12 homers and 16 stolen bases across 140 games. He was ultimately relegated to a reserve role down the stretch, with Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Andrew McCutchen holding down the outfield. With McCutchen hitting the open market, Gardner is tentatively lined up as the team's No. 1 option in left field, though that could easily change depending on the team's offseason transactions.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Re-signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner inked a one-year, $7.5 million deal with the Yankees for 2019 on Wednesday.

The Yankees recently declined Gardner's $12.5 million option, though he received a $2 million buyout from that move, so he will essentially re-join the club on a $9.5 million deal. Gardner was forced to transition to a bench role once Aaron Judge (wrist) returned to the fold in September and statistically had one of his worst years as a major-leaguer dating back to 2008. Across 140 games, he slashed just .236/.322/.368 with 12 home runs, 45 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Depending on New York's upcoming moves this offseason, Gardner could have a shot at winning the starting job in left field, but in all likelihood he'll be relegated to more of a reserve role in 2019.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Bumped to bench by Judge's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup Tuesday against Boston.

In Aaron Judge's first start since returning from a wrist injury, Andrew McCutchen will slide over to left field, bumping Gardner to the bench. The Red Sox are starting righty Nathan Eovaldi, but the right-handed McCutchen gets the start over the left-handed Gardner nonetheless, suggesting that Gardner is due for a bench role rather than a platoon role down the stretch. Judge will likely require the occasional off day as he eases back into action following an extended absence, so Gardner will still get some at-bats, but expect his role to be limited.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: On bench again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
