Yankees' Brett Gardner: Returns to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner agreed to a one-year, $12.5 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Gardner posted a career-best .828 OPS, 28 home runs and 74 RBI in 2019, and he will return to the team that he has been with his entire career in 2020. The 36-year-old could see a good amount of playing time, especially with Aaron Hicks' (elbow) status uncertain heading into next season.

Brett Gardner: In talks with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner and the Yankees are discussing a potential new contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 36-year-old has been with the Yankees since 2008, and while the team has an abundance of outfielders, injuries plagued the group last year. If he would return to the Bronx, Gardner could see a good amount of playing time in order to alleviate the workload of others, especially with Aaron Hicks (elbow) expected to miss most of the season. Gardner had a career-high 28 home runs and 74 RBI with 10 stolen bases over 141 games last season.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Cranks 28th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another run scored in a win over the Rangers on Friday.

Gardner gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead with a homer off Joe Palumbo in the fourth inning. He now has 28 home runs and 86 runs scored this season while batting .253/.327/.507.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Gardner has started the past 10 games, slashing .333/.395/.718 with four home runs and 11 RBI during that stretch. Cameron Maybin is starting in center field and hitting seventh in this one.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Goes deep in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's win over Toronto.

Gardner drove a ball over the right field wall in the first inning to plate three runs. The home run was his ninth through 19 games in September and 27th overall this season, surpassing the season high he previously set two years ago. Gardner has been a key contributor in an injury-marred season for the Yankees, slashing .254/.330/.507 with 84 runs scored and 72 RBI in 136 games.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Pops 26th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, three runs scored and three RBI to help the Yankees to a 9-1 victory over the Angels on Thursday.

Gardner continues to swing a hot bat, as he's now hit safely in seven out of his last eight games, with four multi-hit efforts, five homers and 11 RBI to his name over that stretch. The veteran outfielder's .254 batting average is pedestrian, but he's managed a solid season at the dish overall at age 36, posting an .838 OPS in 134 games. He's also swiped 10 bases in 12 attempts.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Smashes two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in a 13-3 victory against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

At 36, Gardner is showcasing power like never before in his career. He has a new career-high 25 homers and a .500 slugging percentage, which is more than .100 points higher than his career slugging percentage. He's not the same on the bases, but Gardner has reached 10 steals for the seventh straight season, and with one more RBI, he will have a new career best in that category as well. He's batting .248 with 57 extra-base hits, 66 RBI, 79 runs and 10 steals in 452 at-bats this season.

September 12, 2019 10:36 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Clint Frazier starts in left field while Cameron Maybin slides over to center. Look for Gardner to be back in the fold for Game 2.

September 11, 2019 03:48 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner will not start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Gardner has hit five homers over his last eight games, an uncharacteristic display of power from the veteran whose 23 home runs this season represent a career high. Cameron Maybin will start in center field in his absence.

September 11, 2019 10:16 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sets new career high in homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI on Tuesday against the Orioles.

Gardner homered in each of the first two innings -- both came off Edwin Jackson -- to bring his season total to 23. That's the highest single-season mark in his 12-year career, and he could post a slugging percentage over .500 for the first time as well. While certainly aided by the current hitting environment, his campaign has been impressive nonetheless, as he's also chipped in 10 stolen bases and scored 76 runs across 127 games.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Ties career high in homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gardner plated the Yankees' lone run with a solo shot to right field in the fifth inning. The long ball was his 21st this season, tying his career high established in 2017. He has swatted three homers in his last four games.

September 4, 2019 03:04 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Swats 20th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over Texas.

Gardner went deep with a man aboard in the sixth inning to reach the 20-homer mark for the second time in his career. The 36-year-old has collected just four hits in his last 24 at-bats, though three of those hits have left the yard. He is slashing .249/.325/.483 and has contributed 57 RBI and nine stolen bases while scoring 72 runs in 120 games this season.

September 2, 2019 10:28 AM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner will get Labor Day off Monday against the Rangers.

Mike Tauchman slides to center field in Gardner's absence, with September callup Clint Frazier starting in left. The Yankees will certainly want to keep Gardner sharp down the stretch, but there's a good chance that Frazier gets a high number of starts in September, especially with the Yankees holding a 10-game division lead.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Hits key homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-4 victory against the Athletics on Sunday.

Inching closer to a new career high in the home-run department, Gardner tied the game with a solo shot during the ninth. Two batters later, Mike Ford hit a walkoff homer to win the game. Gardner needs three more long balls for a new career high, and he could set a new mark in RBI. Gardner is batting .249 with 19 home runs, 55 RBI, 71 runs and nine steals in 410 at-bats this season.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Blasts 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, two runs and a walk in the Yankees' 7-0 win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Gardner hadn't left the yard since Aug. 6, but he checked in with his 18th homer in the third inning of this contest, cranking a three-run shot off Yusei Kikuchi. His .254 batting average isn't eye-popping, but Garner is showing he can still swing the bat at age 36, as he's slapped 23 doubles and seven triples in addition to the 18 long balls while also drawing 45 walks, giving him a respectable .333 on-base percentage and a solid .485 slugging percentage.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Back in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner (toe) is starting in center field and hitting sixth Thursday in Oakland.

He missed a couple games with an ingrown toenail, but it was a minor issue. Gardner is hitting .316 with two home runs and one steal in 57 at-bats this month.

August 21, 2019 07:20 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is not starting Wednesday in Oakland after having an ingrown toenail removed, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Gardner had the toenail removed Sunday night and has been on the bench for the first two games against the Athletics as a result. Manager Aaron Boone said Gardner will likely return to the starting nine Thursday. Cameron Maybin, Mike Tauchman and Aaron Judge will start from left to right in the outfield Wednesday.

Yankees' Brett Gardner: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game at Oakland, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Gardner started the last five games and is 3-for-17 with three doubles in that stretch, so he'll remain on the bench for the series opener versus the A's. Cameron Maybin, Mike Tauchman and Aaron Judge will start in the outfield from left to right.

August 18, 2019 12:44 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Ejected in Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts before being ejected in the sixth inning of Saturday's 6-5 win over the Indians.

Maybin, pitcher CC Sabathia and manager Aaron Boone were all tossed from the game for their reactions and subsequent arguments with the umpiring crew following a third-strike call on teammate Cameron Maybin in the sixth inning. Gardner isn't expected to face discipline for the incident and will be back in the lineup Sunday, batting sixth and occupying center field.

August 13, 2019 03:36 PM
Yankees' Brett Gardner: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday against Baltimore.

Gardner is in the midst of a nine-game hitting streak, but he'll take a seat Tuesday night. Mike Tauchman gets the nod in center field and will hit ninth with Gardner on the bench.
