Gardner will visit Dr. James Andrews, the noted sports orthopedist, on Monday or Tuesday. Then, at his agent’s request, he will travel to Cincinnati to visit Dr. Timothy Kremchek for a third opinion.
The news was a blow to the Yankees, who were hoping that Gardner could return next week to re-energize the lineup. Gardner has been on the disabled list since April 18 with a bone bruise and a pulled muscle in his elbow.
“He’s had more than enough rest,” General Manager Brian Cashman said. “He should be fine by now. We’ll see what someone else sees.”
Maybe you should have done an exam when he first got hurt instead of resting him on the hope he would get better?
In other great news, the Yankees were outbid for Jorge Soler. I’m annoyed that I went to the trouble of creating a Jorge Soler tag for a grand total of two posts, but whatever.
At least the days when people would accuse the Yankees of buying a pennant appear to be over. They’re not buying anything these days. Seriously, what use could they have had for a 20 year OF prospect with great physical tools?
