I'm a little late on this breaking story (damn internet was down at the apartment), but via Marc Carig, the bad injury luck continues for the Yankees as Brett Gardner has suffered a setback in his rehab from his right elbow strain.
Apparently there was some soreness and swelling after he played in the Triple-A game last night, which would explain why Gardner wasn't activated today, and he's probably getting an MRI as we speak. As usual, I'll update this story as more details become available.
I'm really at a loss here. When is this injury madness going to stop? I can't take it.
** UPDATE- 6:46AM- According to Joe's postgame presser last night, Gardner re-aggravated the strain in his elbow that put him on the DL in the first place. The plan is to shut him down for 10 days and see where he's at then, but Gardner will likely be out longer than that. Dewayne Wise looks like he's going to stick around for a while. **
