Yankees’ Brett Gardner Likely To Be Activated From Disabled List Thursday Night

NEW YORK (WFAN) – Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner is likely to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday night, reports WFAN’s Sweeny Murti.

The speedster was not with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees — the Bombers’ Triple-A affiliate — for their day game on Thursday, so it’s likely that he’ll be in the Bronx this evening.

Gardner was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 19 with an ailing right elbow. Manager Joe Girardi said he believes Gardner was injured while making a tumbling catch in a game against the Minnesota Twins. An MRI confirmed that the left-handed hitter had a strained muscle just above his elbow.

Prior to landing on the DL, the 2011 American League stolen-base leader was hitting .321 with three RBIs, five runs and two stolen bases in nine games.

How much of a boost will Gardner give the Yankees’ lineup when he returns? Offer your thoughts and comments below…
