Brett Gardner Injury Update: Yankees LF Shut Down Again, May Be Done For Season

Brett Gardner was targeting a return to the New York Yankees at the end of July from a right elbow strain that has kept him out three months now. The left fielder has reportedly suffered yet another setback, however, and may now miss the rest of the season.

"The doctors have all come up with the same diagnosis," [manager Joe] Girardi said. "It is puzzling. We expected that he would get through this - our hope is that he'll get through this - but today he was a little sore. I can't tell you what's going to happen or what's next. But we'll see what tomorrow brings."

Gardner had to be shut down after soreness in his right elbow flared up following a simulated game Sunday. Gardner's agent Joe Bick said that his client would undergo another MRI to determine the cause of the prolonged soreness. Bick also said that Gardner is "very frustrated" after the latest setback.
