Brett Gardner, out since July 26 with a broken thumb, is scheduled to see a doctor on Wednesday. If cleared, he will start a rehab assignment soon after. According to Joe Girardi, Gardner should return quickly.
“He’ll need some at-bats, but it shouldn’t be too long,” the manager said.
That’s good news for the Yankees, especially with Meky Cabrera in a 6-for-52 skid that has dropped his batting average down to .266 and his OBP to .327.
