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

EDGE Analysis

Gardner has started the past 20 games, so he'll hit the bench with southpaw Sean Manaea taking the hill for Oakland. Rob Refsnyder will take over in left field for the evening.

Gardner went 1-for-5 with a solo homer Saturday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner launched his 12th homer of the campaign to extend the Yankees lead in the eighth inning of a divisional victory. His improbable power output of 2017 continues, and he'll be an automatic starter for fantasy lineups while he produces at his amazing clip, which currently is evidenced by a .271/.358/.527 slash line.

Gardner went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner set the pace for the Yankee offense with a home run to lead off the game, and the team didn't look back en route to an 8-3 win. The 33-year-old has become a surprisingly viable power threat this year, smacking 11 home runs through the opening two months after hitting just seven all of last year. Gardner's also sporting a .276 average, his highest since an injury-shortened 16-game season in 2012, so he's producing across all categories right now.

Gardner went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is turning in another solid season of cross-category production. He's up to eight homers, 18 RBI, five stolen bases and 31 runs with a .282/.376/.514 slash line. Gardner has a shot to post a monster return in the runs column setting the table for the powerful Yankee lineup, too.

Gardner went 3-for-5 with a home run, double, and three runs scored in Sunday's 11-6 win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

It was a big day for Gardner in the first game of a doubleheader. The left fielder hit his seventh home run of the season in the eighth inning of this contest, a solo shot. Since April 29, Gardner is 20-for-53 with seven home runs and 13 RBI. With this display, he's raised his slash line on the season to .274/.366/.504. While speed continues to be his primary asset, he's raised some eyebrows with the bat over the past month, making him worthy of fantasy consideration.

Gardner went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Monday's 10-4 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Gardner didn't start Sunday but still managed two hits in five at-bats in the 18-inning marathon. The lefty speedster has now hit in 10 straight games to raise his average to .260 on the season. The homer was his sixth in 2017. The 33-year-old continues to be valuable for his speed, but he also has occasional pop, as evidenced by his four long balls in the month of May already.

According to YES Network, Gardner is not listed in the starting lineup for Sunday evening's game against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Jacoby Ellsbury (elbow) is good to go in center, and with Aaron Hicks in left and super-slugger Aaron Judge in right in an NL ballpark (no DH), Gardner is the odd-man out against southpaw Jon Lester.
