Brett Gardner LF/CF NYY 5 Days

Gardner (abdomen) is in the lineup for Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

It was feared Gardner was in danger of missing the rest of the season an MRI earlier in the week revealed an abdominal strain, but he'll step back in for Friday's nightcap after missing just a handful of starts. He'll man center and bat third against right-hander Bud Norris.

Gardner (abdomen) could be available for the second game of Friday's game against the Orioles, ESPN New York reports.

Gardner is not in the lineup for the first game, but the report indicates he might be able to give it a go in the nightcap. Dealing with an abdominal strain, Gardner has not played since last Friday. Chris Young will once again fill the void in left field Friday afternoon.

Gardner (abdomen) could miss the rest of the season, the NY Post reports.

While he hasn't been ruled out for a set amount of time, manager Joe Girardi admitted "it's a concern" after an MRI revealed Gardner's abdominal strain. He may still return this season, but at this point it seems likely that he'll miss at least a few games first.

Gardner has been diagnosed with an abdominal strain, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Gardner has been sidelined with abdominal tightness for a few days, but the Yankees are now classifying his injury as a strain, which hints at the setback being more severe than originally thought. Gardner is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, and he will instead visit with a Yankees team doctor for further evaluation of his injury.

Gardner is dealing with abdominal tightness, and it has kept him out of the past two games. Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field Sunday, while Gardner will likely be unavailable for the Yankees as he rests.

Gardner sat out Saturday's game with abdominal tightness, and may miss Sunday's game too, the NY Daily News reports.

Gardner said he had the same issue earlier in the season, and only sat out one game for it in July, so this is likely a very short-term issue. Though he said he's not feeling 100%, there's a chance he'll be back in the lineup Sunday.

Gardner is out of the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

This is a very rare day off for Gardner, who, along with Jacoby Ellsbury, has been one of the Yankees' most consistent players this season. Zelous Wheeler will get the start in left field, but Gardner should be back in the lineup Sunday.

Gardner was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Red Sox in the fifth inning, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Gardner took a called third strike from Joe Kelly and proceeded to spike his helmet in frustration, as it was his third strikeout in as many trips to the plate. The umpire, not happy with the display, tossed Gardner, who was replaced in left field by Martin Prado to begin the top of the sixth.

Gardner went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in New York's loss to Toronto on Sunday.

Gardner hasn't had a good month, slashing .191/.280/.292 in 89 at-bats, so his fantasy owners have been waiting for a game like this. Despite a shaky August, Gardner has already set career-highs in home runs (15) and RBI (54) this season, and he's chipped in 24 stolen bases to boot.
