Likely the end for Brett Gardner with the Yankees
Less than two weeks separate us from the start of the season. Most organizations already have a good idea of the staff they will be fielding on April 7. The Yankees are no exception.
For the first time in 15 years, Brett Gardner’s name is not on the guest list. Barring a massacre in the infirmary, it seems that this is the end for the oldest member of the organization.
In interview with the New York PostBrian Cashman said he was satisfied with what he has on hand, although he remains in contact with Gardner’s agent.
“Right now we’re focused on what we have, to be honest. There is nothing more to say at this point. »
Currently, the Yankees’ outfield consists of Joey Gallo on the left, Aaron Hicks in center, and Aaron Judge on the right. Ender Inciarte and Tim Locastro are fighting for the role of reservist. Additionally, Giancarlo Stanton will patrol one of the two ends occasionally.
There’s no more room for Gardner. Unless he finds a taker in another formation (there were rumors with the Blue Jays recently), his career will be over. He can be proud of his career. In 14 seasons in the Bronx, he had nearly 1,500 hits and 274 stolen bases. Not to mention a World Series ring in 2009.
As a Yankees fan, I sometimes loved or hated Brett Gardner, but I always respected his effort. His desire to win and his energy make him a great Yankee. Thanks Brett and good luck for the future.
