Yankees OF Brett Gardner could find himself back in the lineup for Wednesday night's contest in the Bronx.
It will all depend on the treatment Gardner received on his inflamed knee on Tuesday. He hit in the batting cage before Tuesday night's 7-2 win over the Mariners. And from what manager Aaron Boone has seen from his veteran outfielder, he is very optimistic Gardern is close to returning.
"We will see. I think it's realistic," Boone told The Post's George A. King III. about Gardner returning to lineup. "I actually believe he might be an option [Tuesday night]."
