Brett Gardner Suffers Setback; May Miss Season

As the trade deadline approaches, the Yankees may need to look into options to replace the speed of Brett Gardner, as the outfielder’s season looks to be in jeopardy.

Gardner suffered another setback on Monday, feeling pain in his right elbow after playing a simulated game. Gardner will have another MRI- most likely today- to try and identify the issue that has sidelined him since April 17th. The initial injury came on a diving attempt against the Twins, and was initially thought to be a relatively minor injury.

The Yankees have coasted without Gardner, despite the fact that he is one of their only speed threats on the base paths. When asked about how this news would affect any potential trades, GM Brian Cashman emphasized that he doesn’t “feel that if (Brett) doesn’t come back, that I have to do something here, because the other guys are doing such a great job for us in my opinion.”
