For Gardner, a Misbegotten Season (so far)

Chad Jennings reports that Brett Gardner will not need surgery but the Yanks don’t expect him back for about another month.

It’s been a lost first half for Gardner though the Yanks will be fortunate if he returns and is healthy come mid-July. In the meantime, do you suppose they’ll make do with what they’ve got or make a move to get more talent in left field? My hunch is that they are going to wait it out with what they’ve got.

Such a bummer. I really hope they've got this right and that they're not just postponing the inevitable and losing his entire season. I had a similar elbow injury and it took FOREVER to heal (like over 6 months) without surgery.

I think they will make-do as well, but I hope they get someone who can have a big impact in LF for the stretch run and then move over to RF next season when Swisher departs.
