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.
