Quick Hit: Brett Gardner Expected Back Tonight

Brett Gardner is expected to be back tonight when the New York Yankees host the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium. The offense struggled to score over the weekend against the Kansas City Royals getting shut out twice while Gardner missed two games with a strained muscle in his stomach. Last time this flared up Gardner only missed one game with the injury but this time he has had at least three days of rest, maybe that will be enough to knock it out for the rest of the season.

The Yankees sorely, no pun intended, need Gardner back in the middle of that lineup and on the base paths as the team continues to struggle at the plate. The Yankees playoff hopes dwindled to almost nothing this weekend after losing two of three to the Royals so if they have any inkling or miracle brewing it will have to include Brett Gardner for it to be a reality.

Welcome back Brett, this team really needs you.
