ATLANTA — The Yankees refused to fully divulge what doctors have learned about Brett Gardner’s troublesome right elbow.
However, manager Joe Girardi offered a glimpse into the findings Tuesday, revealing that Gardner’s issues have nothing to do with his elbow ligaments. That fact alone rules out the possibility of Tommy John surgery, which would have cost the outfielder the rest of his season.
I’m not sure I like the way this story line is unfolding.
In better news, AP: Yankees’ Rivera says knee surgery ‘went perfectly’.
Girardi said the surgery clears the path for Rivera’s comeback in 2013.
“I think we’re all expecting to see Mo pitch next year,” Girardi said. “I really don’t think we’re going to see any issues.”
