Yankees’ Gardner Could Return As Pinch-Runner
Originally posted on CBS New York:
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Brett Gardner underwent surgery on his right elbow on July 24th and was placed on the reserve list. It appeared his season was over.
That’s about to change as the Yankees could desperately use Gardner’s speed on the base paths. The Yankees are chasing after the American League East divisional crown in mid-September and are ready to activate Gardner in a pinch-running role.
Joe Girardi told reporters Gardner could be activated in the near future before Saturday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
