Yankees' Brett Gardner Has Surgery, Should Be Ready for Spring

Bronx Baseball DailySenior Analyst IDecember 8, 2010


Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner had surgery on his wrist yesterday to remove some inflammation and everything went well. The Yankees expect that he’ll be ready to go by spring training.

Gardner suffered through wrist tendinitis during the second half of last season. He had a couple of cortisone shots, but when that didn’t help, he decided to have surgery.

Gardner had a hot first half last year hitting .319 with a .836 OPS until July 4. From  July 5 and on, his numbers took a nose dive as he hit .229 with a .679 OPS the rest of the way. Hopefully now that he’s had surgery to repair his wrist he can have a full season in 2011 like his first half last year.
