Gardner to the DL; Albaladejo named temporary replacement

Brett Gardner broke his thumb and didn’t even know it. He broke it in yesterday’s game on a takeout slide at second base, but that didn’t stop him from hitting an RBI triple and making two diving catches later in the game.

Reliever Jonathan Albaladejo took Gardner’s spot on the roster, but Peter Abraham informs us that he will only be a temporary replacement. He suggests a position player (Austin Jackson, Shelley Duncan & John Rodriguez) will be added within the next couple of days.

Gardner is still the man, in my opinion. He gives the Yankees a spark and was having a very solid rookie season. I’ll miss him, but the Yankees should be just fine without him.
