While Masahiro Tanaka was the main source of news today, there was another injury in the Yankees clubhouse.

Brett Gardner wasn’t in the starting lineup this evening due to a mild abdominal strain. He said he felt it during last night’s game and was afraid it was a hernia, although he never had a hernia before. He was checked out after the game and received semi-good news.

“Got checked out by the doctor after the game,” Gardner said. “He seemed to think that it’s definitely not a hernia. Ruled that out and said it might be like a very light maybe muscle strain or aggravation.”

Gardner said he feels much better today and could have played, but Joe Girardi thought it would have been better if Gardner got a full day off. Both Girardi and Gardner opened the possibility of Gardner playing tomorrow.
