From the Yankees:
OF Brett Gardner saw Dr. Timothy Kremchek today, who agreed with the Yankees’ diagnosis of an elbow muscle strain, bone bruise and joint inflammation, which have not fully healed.
Dr. Kremcheck administered a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and cortisone shot today, and agreed with Dr. Andrews’ recommendation from Monday of giving the elbow 3-4 weeks of rest with an elbow brace to ensure compliance with the rest.
In addition, the Yankees today reinstated RHP David Robertson from the 15-day disabled list and optioned RHP David Phelps to Single-A Tampa. Once his arm strength builds towards the 5.0-inning mark, Phelps is scheduled to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
