Brett Gardner shut down for 10 days after aggravating elbow injury

May 10, 2012, 10:20 PM EST

UPDATE: According to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, Gardner won’t pick up a bat for 10 days after aggravating the muscle in his right elbow.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi estimated that he’ll miss 15-25 days, so we won’t see him back until late May or early June at this point.

4:31 PM: Brett Gardner was expected to be activated Thursday after playing two minor league rehab games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but it didn’t happen.  Why? Setback:

Not good news. The Yankees lineup is having some trouble these days and could use Gardner’s on-base skills and speed.  More news as we learn it.

    And Mo had a “little sprain” in his knee and Pineda had a “little setback” in his rehab.

    I’m having a “little setback” in my enthusiasm today.

    New swelling on the elbow.

    Not to mention needing his”near” Gold Glove performance in the left field. SHut him down until he’s completely healthy so he can have a long career with the Yanks.

    This guy always seems to be injured.

    Can’t bat for 10 days. Out 15-25 days per Girardi

    By the time September rolls around there won’t be anyone left to play the games at this rate! My goodness!
