An MRI on Brett Gardner’s right wrist showed no break or tear, but it did show considerable inflamation. Gardner got a cortisone shot and is hopeful it will do the trick within a day or two.

“I couldn’t have picked up a bat today and swung,” Gardner said.

The pain is right at the base of the wrist, a little bit lower than the spot where Gardner was hit by a pitch in Los Angeles. He said he can play defense and pinch run tonight.

Gardner said he considered today’s MRI, “pretty much good news.”
