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.
