Yankees put OF Bret Gardner on IL
BOSTON (AP) — The New York Yankees have put outfielder Bret Gardner on the 10-day injured list with left knee inflammation.
The move was retroactive to Monday. Gardner has batted .243 with 15 homers and 41 RBIs this season. Gardner said he hurt the knee while making a sliding catch on Colorado’s Ryan McMahon in the ninth inning Saturday.
To fill his spot on the roster, the Yankees recalled left-hander Stephen Tarpley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Gardner is the 23rd Yankees player to go on the IL this year, three more than they put on the disabled list in all of last season.
