The curious case of Brett Gardner continues to be a head scratcher. What initially was supposed to be a 15-day stint on the disabled list, has now turned into months and months of guessing what is wrong with him.
After four at-bats yesterday in a simulated game, Gardner is sore today and had to be shut down once again.
"He came up a little sore today, so he's not playing today," Girardi said before Monday night's game. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow and we'll go from there."
This is something that continues to happen to Gardner and is quite puzzling.
"It's a concern because it's happened before," Girardi said. "Hopefully he can just get through this and he'll continue to play, but we'll have to wait and see."

The Yankees needed to win the game on Tuesday night plain and simple. Now, nothing is truly must win in April, but with their horse on the mound and three games left in the homestand, the Yankees were looking for a strong, deep outing from CC Sabathia and their offense to get going. Things did not look good after the first two and a half innings, but then the team righted the ship.
With the Yankees trailing 3-1 in the third inning of this second game of the four-game set, the offense needed to step up. Sabathia would eventually calm down and pitch a gem, but he finally got that run support he needed to ensure a Yankees victory.
