Brett Gardner has suffered yet another setback in his rehab from a strained right elbow, casting doubt about his return to the Yankees this season.This is Gardner's third setback. Expect the Yankees to monitor the outfield market a lot more closely now.
The speedy outfielder awoke Monday with soreness in the elbow. He had restarted his baseball rehab on Sunday with four at-bats in a simulated game.
"It's a concern because it's happened before," manager Joe Girardi said on Monday afternoon. "But we'll have to wait and see."
"It is puzzling," Girardi said. "We expected that he'd get through this and our hope is still that he'll get through this."
