Brett Gardner Injury Update: Yankees LF Out Through July

Brett Gardner will miss at least two-and-a-half more weeks as he struggles in his recovery from a right elbow strain, general manager Brian Cashman told ESPN New York on Tuesday. Gardner has played in just nine game with the New York Yankees this season after being injured diving for a ball in mid-April.

Gardner has suffered several setbacks in his recovery. He was expected to miss just two weeks at the time of the injury, but had to be shut down again during his first minor league assignment. His prognosis moved to just past the All-Star break, but it appears now that he be out until at least July 27, according to Cashman.

"He is swinging off of a tee," Cashman said. "He's been fine but as you know, his first two outings that's what he did. He was fine until he got all the way through a major league rehab. There is going to be a lot of, 'He's fine,' up until he is playing in rehab games."
