Brett Gardner LF/CF NYY 3 Days

Gardner (ankle) went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

Returning after a three-game absence from the starting lineup, Gardner resumed contributing in several categories Wednesday night. Gardner and the Yankees will face a left-handed starter in three of their next four games, so he may see additional time off in the near future as a result of matchups as he's posted a .673 OPS against southpaws thus far.

Gardner (ankle) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Gardner will return from his three-game absence Wednesday, but he'll fall all the way down to the eight-hole with lefty David Price on the hill for Detroit. Gardner is just 2-for-20 in his career against Price. Manager Joe Girardi suggested Tuesday that Gardner may not be quite at 100 percent, so there's a chance he could require another maintenance day for his ankle in the near future.

Gardner (ankle) is out of the lineup Tuesday in Detroit, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. However, after running in the field prior to the game, he hopes that he'll cleared to play in some capacity, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Gardner's best bet is a pinch-hit appearance followed by a stint in the field, but his sore ankle must respond accordingly. In the meantime, Ichiro Suzuki is handling left field, with Carlos Beltran sliding out to right.

Updating a previous report, Gardner is out of the lineup Sunday due to a sore ankle, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

It initially seemed like manager Joe Girardi kept Gardner out of his starting nine Sunday in effort to stack his lineup with right-handers against tough lefty Chris Sale, but the injury likely better explains his absence. The severity of his ailment isn't known at this time, making Gardner something of a question mark heading into the upcoming week's slate of games.
