Brett Gardner May Be Used In Limited Role

When the rosters expand in September the Yankees did not leave out the possibility of a Brett Gardner return, in a limited role of course. The Yankees say they can use him as a pinch runner and late game defender because his only complications were when swinging a bat. I cannot really see why we would want to risk it, especially with his arm in the outfield, with such a comfortable lead and no real need for Gardner. This honestly has me scared to death as a Yankees fan that they would, even though they said they would not, jeopardize his 2013 and beyond.

Gardner is one throw in the outfield, or dive in the outfield, or head first slide away from tommy john surgery or a career threatening injury. I do not see the need in this whatsoever. I will be monitoring this situation very closely.
