Gardner Seen Running Bases & Bunting Today

Brett Gardner was seen before the Yankees and Rays game practicing bunting and running for the first time since his elbow surgery "ended" his season. Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess as now Joe Girardi is once again hinting at and thinking about using Gardner as a late game pinch runner or specialist. With the 40 man roster we should not have a problem replacing him if he is needed in the field, where surely he cannot throw or needs to come to bat, but that will not be a luxury we have if we make it to the post season. Since Gardner is on the 60 day DL he will need to be activated and the Yankees will need to remove someone from the 40 man to make room for him, Derek Lowe anyone, so we will be watching this development closely.
