Bronx Baseball Daily:
If the Yankees look for an outfielder on the trade market to replace Brett Gardner it doesn’t sound like it will be Carlos Quentin.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees don’t think Quentin is a good fit and will look for someone faster, more like Gardner, to replace Gardner.
Quentin, 29, is a free agent at the end of this year and is currently hitting .421/.542/.921/1.463 in 12 games since coming off the DL. His career line is .255/.349/.498/.847. In his younger days with the Diamondbacks he was solid defensively, but lately injuries have slowed him and he’s been more of a liability out there.
The Yankees took a big hit defensively when Gardner went down and it’s easy to see how important outfield defense can be when watching Raul Ibanez butcher everything out there. So it’s easy to see why the Yankees would want somebody who could improve their running game and outfield defense like Gardner did.
The Yankees might also want to think about Nick Swisher. If they go after an outfielder with more years on his contract after this season, they could potentially slide him into right field next season when Gardner is fully healthy and Swisher possibly departs via free agency.

Another day, another setback in Brett Gardner’s rehab from the elbow strain and bone bruise suffered way back on April 17th while making a sliding catch. Crazy, considering how insignificant the injury initially looked, at least from the upper deck, where I was watching the game from.
