Gardner went 1-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran leadoff man has now hit safely in seven of eight games and was the only Yankee to get on base more than once Saturday. He's tallied five multi-hit outings in September but has not homered since back on July 30 against the Rays.

Gardner went 3-for-4 with a double and one RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the Yankees, but Gardner continued to stay hot, as he logged his fourth multi-hit game in his last four starts. He also added a stolen base Sunday -- his first attempt since July 17 -- which was an element owners likely expected to see more out of this year, as his 14 stolen bases are his fewest in a full season since his rookie campaign. For now though, the 33-year-old is making up for it at the plate with a .333 average in September as he looks to finish the year up strong.

Gardner is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner is coming off of consecutive multi-hit efforts, but the lefty will head to the bench Friday with southpaw Blake Snell set to toe the rubber for Tampa Bay. In his stead, Rob Refsnyder will draw the start in left field and bat second.

Gardner is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner's days off are typically limited to games against lefties, but after an 0-for-4, two strikeout showing Sunday, he'll head to the bench even with the right-handed Dillon Gee set to get the start for Kansas City. Aaron Hicks will take over in left field and bat second in his stead.

Gardner went 2-for-5 with three RBI and a run in Friday's 14-4 victory over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran leadoff man provided timely hitting in the blowout, plating Chase Headley and Clark Judge in the second with a single and then closing out the scoring with another run-scoring hit in the seventh that drove in Ronald Torreyes. The 33-year-old now has hits in three straight, with four RBI over that span.

Gardner is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner has been having a rough time at the plate lately, having gone a mere 2-for-16 over the last seven games. He'll have the night off as Aaron Hicks gets the nod to start in the outfield with Jacoby Ellsbury and Aaron Judge.

Gardner is out of the lineup Friday against the Angels, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gadner played Thursday's game after missing four days with an ankle injury, so it makes sense for the Yankees to be careful with their outfielder. Aaron Hicks will start in left field and bat seventh during Gardner's absence.

Gardner (ankle) is back in the lineup Wednesday against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

A sore ankle kept Gardner out of the lineup each of the previous four days, but he'll return to left field Wednesday and lead off against the Blue Jays' J.A. Happ. Aaron Hicks, who had been fillimg in for Gardner in left field, will shift to center and bat ninth.

Gardner (ankle) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner's ankle is still not fully healed after he fouled a ball off of it in Friday's game against Tampa Bay. He'll be replaced yet again in left field by Aaron Hicks. Gardner's next chance to return to the lineup will come Wednesday, and that will be a distinct possibility if he's able to enter Tuesday's game as a sub off the bench.
