New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (abdomen) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 9, with a lower abdominal issue. His abdomen bothered him during the game Tuesday, July 8, and he was worried he had a hernia. "Got checked out by the doctor after the game," Gardner said. "He seemed to think that it's definitely not a hernia. Ruled that out and said it might be like a very light maybe muscle strain or aggravation." Gardner is expecting to be back in the lineup Thursday, July 10.
Fantasy Tip: For now, this is a day-to-day ailment. With the All-Star break nearing, expect the Yankees to be extremely cautious.
