SURPRISE!!!- Brett Gardner Suffered Another Setback With His Elbow
You mean to tell me that the guy who took longer than normal to recover from a simple elbow strain, and had setback after setback in his attempts to come back from said elbow strain, usually right after he tried to resume full baseball activities, has had ANOTHER setback to his strained elbow??? Get the hell outta town!
Believe it or not, that's where we stand on the Brett Gardner Injury Carousel again. He got 4 at-bats in a simulated game yesterday, felt sore today, and according to Ken Davidoff, Gardner is scheduled for another MRI tomorrow. Even if this MRI comes up clean, I think it's safe for us to stop expecting anything from Gardner this season. Clearly there's something more here than just a strain, and to continue to risk further damage to Gardner's elbow by having him continue to ramp his rehab back up would be foolish. Until Skynet upgrades the world's MRI technology to something advanced enough to show what the real problem is, just shut the BG-1000 down until further notice.
