Gardner set to begin rehab assignment tomorrow


Via Erik Boland, outfielder Brett Gardner will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Empire State tomorrow. He’s been on the DL for nearly three weeks with a bone bruise and a strain in his right elbow after landing awkwardly during a sliding catch. Depending on how he feels and stuff, Gardner could be back as soon as Tuesday I suppose. A two or three game rehab assignment is more likely, however.

    Not a minute too soon. They should immediately burn Ibanez glove.

      He had a solid running grab in yesterdays game, perhaps the best solution is to just need to keep his glove on ice.

    While Ibanez is still wearing it

    Lol he hits the ball far once in a while, that’s it

      Give him some credit, he got the scoring started today. He doesn’t do that, maybe Hochevar gets settled in and pitches a gem.
