Gardner went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He was the only member of the Yankees to break through against young southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez, taking him deep with a 415-foot shot to left in the third. The round-tripper was notably the veteran outfielder's first since May 18. Gardner is following up a strong June during which he slashed .323/.390/.366 with a solid July, now having posted multi-hit efforts in five of the last 11 games.

Gardner is starting in left field and batting leadoff Friday against Cleveland, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner, usually in the two-hole, will be bumped up to bat leadoff with Jacoby Ellsbury batting second in the order. It appears to just be a minor shake up as Gardner and Ellsbury commonly bat consecutively at the top of the order. Gardner has been producing well lately, slashing .286/.333/.329 with 10 runs over his last 16 games.

Gardner went 4-for-6 and scored twice in a win Tuesday over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner was mired in a 4-for-27 slump over his past six games before busting out in Tuesday's blowout win. He mashed his 11th double as part of the big game, but he's still struggling to find his power stroke. Gardner hasn't homered since May 18 and is at risk of posting his first season with single-digit home runs since 2013.

Gardner is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner has hit a bit of a skid recently after a blistering start to June, collecting one hit in his last 15 at-bats. Manager Joe Girardi will get Gardner a breather Friday with lefty Pat Dean due up for Minnesota as Aaron Hicks takes over in left field. Rob Refsnyder will move up to the two-hole in the batting order.

Gardner reached base four times Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a walk against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner has officially heated up, as he's batting 15-for-27 (.556) over his current seven-game hitting streak, while also swiping a pair of bases in the process. The 32-year-old endured a dismal start to the season and hasn't homered since May 18 so he's not totally out of the woods yet, but it's still encouraging to see signs that he's turning his season around.

Gardner went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner endured a brutal month of May (.184 average) and is still hitting just .237 on the season, but there are signs that the left fielder may be breaking out of this slump as he's collected at least two hits in three consecutive games. Despite the poor average, the 32-year-old is still getting on base fairly regularly and has taken advantage of his speed in those situations, swiping 10 bags in 12 tries.

Gardner is out of the lineup Thursday, LoHud's Chad Jennings reports.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Matt Boyd on the mound for the Tigers, the Yankees will get Aaron Hicks in the mix in left field. Gardner is off to a really rough start this season, but his .246 BABIP is cause for optimism going forward, as his career rate is .316.
