Gardner Says Wrist is Getting Better


"It feels a lot better today," Gardner said on Tuesday. "It's still a little swollen, a little bit stiff. Hopefully, I can swing a bat tomorrow."

X-rays taken on Monday came back negative, and Gardner spent Tuesday receiving treatment on that wrist. The speedy outfielder was expected to be available as both a pinch-runner and a defensive replacement for the Yankees' series opener with the Mariners, and he's cautiously optimistic about starting on Wednesday.

"They're talking it could be a couple days -- it could be day-to-day," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's progressing. We're just evaluating every day."

That's a relief. The guy's been an All-Star this season, and they really can't afford any key injuries right now.
