Brett Gardner (elbow) will join the Yankees in St. Petersburg, Fla., next week during the series against the Rays to take dry swings, but is still not expected back prior to the All-Star break. Gardner will first play in rehab games when teams return to action with the goal for him to be activated at full strength. He suffered a second setback on June 10 while playing with with Single-A Charleston, so the organization will err on the side of caution.No reason not to be cautious. With the Yankees currently holding onto the game's best record there is no reason to rush anything with Gardner.
