Gardner isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

After going 0-for-3 Saturday, Gardner will get the day off to clear his mind and rest before Tuesday's wild-card game against the Twins. Clint Frazier is starting in left field and hitting eighth with Gardner out.

Gardner is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Gardy snapped a 32-game homerless streak Thursday but won't get a chance to build on it as a starter the following day. Aaron Hicks is in left field, and Jacoby Ellsbury stations in center. Gardner's recent slide slowed an otherwise solid-to-great year, as he heads into the final regular-season weekend with a .266/.351/.430 slash, 21 home runs, 96 runs scored and 23 stolen bases.

Gardner went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner went 32 games without a homer leading into Thursday, so fantasy owners should take the long fly and run. It's still been a strong fantasy campaign for the veteran, as he sports a .266/.351/.430 slash line with 21 homers, 63 RBI, 23 stolen bases and 96 runs. However, his late-season will have a huge toll on his final stat line.

Gardner is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner is batting just .208 against left-hander pitchers this season, so he'll get the day off with the Rays sending out southpaw Blake Snell. Clint Frazier will start in left field and bat eighth in his stead.

Gardner (shoulder) is starting in left field and batting leadoff Saturday against the Blue Jays, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner was hit by a pitch on his shoulder Wednesday, but he's good to go after getting Thursday and Friday off to recover. The 34-year-old will face Joe Biagini in his return to the lineup as he looks to extend his 11-game hitting streak, a span over which he's gone 19-for-49 (.388).

Gardner (shoulder) is out of the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees had Thursday off, but Gardner will sit out Friday so that his shoulder can have a bit more time to recover after being hit by a pitch in Wednesday's contest. At this point in time, he should be considered day-to-day. Clint Frazier will start in left field and hit ninth in Friday's series opener against Toronto.

Gardner could miss time after being hit by pitch in the shoulder Wednesday, Dan Martin of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though he was later removed for a pinch-hitter when the game was already in hand, Gardner was able to stay in the game after the hit by pitch and is hoping Thursday's off day will be all the rest he'll need. Manager Joe Girardi sounded a bit more concerned though, and indicated he may sit his starting left fielder for Friday's series opener against Toronto. For now, Gardner seems to be day-to-day, though the situation should become more clear prior to Friday's tilt.

Gardner went 3-for-4 with a trio of singles and added two steals in Monday's win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner has been noticeably more aggressive on the basepaths of late, and he's now 22-for-27 in that department to give him his highest total there since he stole 24 bags in 2013. It's encouraging that the 34-year-old is finding a way to stay productive with his legs -- even though his 20 home runs are already a career high, he's left the yard just once since July 29.

Gardner is out of the lineup against the Orioles on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner hits the bench for a standard day off following seven straight starts, slashing .333/.412/.433 with four RBI and four runs over that span. Clint Frazier will patrol left field in his stead.

Gardner went 2-for-5 with a triple, two runs scored and two RBI Sunday in Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner's two-run triple started the scoring in what eventually became a six-run fourth inning. The leadoff man's strong game at the plate was overshadowed by multi-homer efforts from both Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge as New York dominated 16-7. Gardner's .426 slugging percentage is a career high and he needs just six more extra-base hits to tie his 2013 best of 51.
