Found July 18, 2012 on Sliding Into Home:
From Connor Orr:
Manager Joe Girardi did not have any definitive news on injured left fielder Brett Gardner (right elbow) Tuesday night, amid reports Gardner could be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Girardi said he called Gardner yesterday, but couldn’t speak with him because Gardner was undergoing an MRI.

“I think he was in the MRI tube,” Girardi joked, saying he couldn’t call again or else it would “mess up the scanner.”

When reached Tuesday night, Gardner’s agent, Joe Bick, said he didn’t have an update, either. Girardi expects to have a report on the MRI by Wednesday.


Girardi revealed before Monday night’s game against Toronto that Gardner had to be shut down again due to the elbow flaring up after a simulated game on Sunday.

But Girardi wasn’t ready to count out Gardner, even if he can’t be productive at the plate. He said if Gardner isn’t fully healthy, he could be used for his defense and in pinch-running situations later in the season.

“You could do that in September, sure,” Girardi said. “It just depends, if he doesn’t get healthy, what we’d have to do.”
I assume the results will be in fairly soon, so check back later for an update.

Brett Gardner Has Another Setback

  Gardner was sore a day after he had four at-bats in a three-inning simulated game and was being kept off the field Monday. The speedy outfielder has already had two setbacks in his recovery from a strained elbow that has sidelined him since April 18.  “It is puzzling,” Girardi said. “Our hope is still that he will get through this.” Gardner’s agent, Joe Bick, told...

Gardner Still Hurts While Role Players Still Shine

When the news came down yesterday that Brett Gardner suffered yet another setback in his quest to come back from that elbow injury, I could have been very upset about it. But I wasn't. Why should I or any Yankee fan be that upset? After all, the team is 21 games over .500, in first place by a whopping 9 games. True, they'd be better at manufacturing runs and the defense in...

Read This Once And Forget Everything Else You See Or Hear On The Subject

 Brett Gardner's injury has still not been properly diagnosed. Until it is, and until he exits the Hospital For Special Surgery with a successful operation, he is not playing baseball again.  He does not need more rest.  He needs repair.  I have been saying this since he went away.  And you all know that.  So take a deep breath, have a dozen manhattans, and forget about...

Bad News For Brett

From David Waldstein:Any slim hope the Yankees may have had that Brett Gardner would return from an elbow injury this season was almost certainly wiped out Thursday, when it was determined that he would have surgery.

Gardner Suffers Another Setback

From Pete Caldera:Brett Gardner has suffered yet another setback in his rehab from a strained right elbow, casting doubt about his return to the Yankees this season.

Loss to Oakland leaves us once again on verge of total collapse

You know about bad hair days, right? Yesterday was a bad Yankee day.  First, we lost Brett Gardner for the year. We learned the high-tech MRI scans he's undergone since April were done with somebody's Swinger camera, and now he needs elbow surgery, which will probably be handled with a Bic pen. All this time, we waited for him to heal from an ailment that wouldn&...

Brett's Elbow May Have Been Stolen And Sold As Part Of Body Part Scandal

The news broke today that more than 1 billion body parts have been illegally harvested and sold for profit.The Doctors, as we know, have so far been unable to diagnose what is wrong with Brett Gardner's elbow.Perhaps that is because he no longer has one.  A Red Socks terrorist may well have visited him in his sleep and removed it. It may now be on the best throwing arm of the...

Yankees' backup left fielders keep coming through

Brett Gardner has appeared in just nine games for the Yankees this season, and none since injuring his right (non-throwing) elbow attempting a diving catch on April 17. As general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday, the Yankees barely have missed the speedy outfielder and lineup pest because of the presence of two aging players whose skill sets won't be confused with Gardner...

Yankees Will Also Monitor the OF Market

From Jon Heyman:The Yankees are looking harder at the outfield market than the pitching market, as they still have concerns about Brett Gardner's elbow situation. They've talked to the Phillies about Shane Victorino and the Diamondbacks about Justin Upton, but Upton is a major long shot for them and right now they see the price tag as too high on either. Victorino may...

Yankeetorial: We can put a golf cart on Mars and find the Higgs Boson, but we can't decipher the mysteries of Brett Gardner and Eduardo Nunez?

I offer two words to summarize the ongoing status of Yankee LF Brett Gardner's problem elbow.Quack. Quack.Good grief, what are they using to analyze it, a divining rod? Who's running the show, the team midwife? Gardner's been crocheting in front of the daytime boob tube since Tax Day, his arm wrapped in tin foil, but when he visits Marcus Welby for a monthly checkup...
