Brett Gardner's Got An Ouchie

With rumors already flowing that the Yankees are looking for a (younger) outfielder, you can bet GM Brian Cashman will be looking even harder after Brett Gardner was hurting again after a weekend of baseball activities.

Gardner has been limited to just nine games due to his bum right elbow that shows no sign of injury on X-Rays. But the pain has not gone away and is more bothersome after activity.

Joe Girardi told reporters today that he was "puzzled" by his outfielder's undiagnosed dilema. Gardner has already had the elbow checked out by noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews, but a return trip might be necessary.

It hasn't been mentioned, but continued pain leads me to believe that the elbow may eventually have to be scoped.
