Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner missed the team's series finale on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies due to a knee injury.
Aaron Boone did not sound overly concerned about the issue. The manager told reporters that he's classifying Gardner as "day to day," however, he did not commit to Gardner playing on Monday against the Minnesota Twins.
An MRI on Gardner revealed inflammation in the left knee, but no further structural damage was found, per Boone.
Gardner also did not sound overly concerned about the issue himself, either. Following the game he said he tried to play, but after discussing it with team doctors, he decided otherwise.
"Maybe banged it up a little bit and kind of aggravated it," Gardner said. "I could have played. I was definitely available to play. Just where we're at, just trying to give me the day, maybe (wait until Monday) to see if it gets better."
"Nothing too serious," Gardner added.
Mike Tauchman started in place of Gardner as the Yankees went on the drop the contest 8-4.
