Brett Gardner took himself out of tonight’s game when he realized he wouldn’t be able to swing a bat. He was hit by a pitch in the lower part of his right forearm, close to his wrist. He stayed in for an inning but had to come out.
“It got tight and it swelled up,” he said.
Gardner was evaluated at Dodger Stadium and so far it seems like a relatively minor injury.
“Their doctor saw no reason for x-rays,” Joe Girardi said. “However he’s going to see our doctor tomorrow.”
