Yankees Brett Gardner Undergoes Abdominal Surgery


Earlier today, MLB Network Radio announced New York Yankees’ outfielder Brett Gardner underwent successful surgery on a sports hernia/core muscle injury. But there’s no need to be alarmed Yankees fans. According to Gardner, it was a minor operation, and he should be back to 100% within a week or so, and it will not have any affect on his season.

2015 will be the first year of a four-year, $52 million deal the Yankees signed Gardner to before the start of this past season. It was also one of the best seasons of Gardner’s career, as he tallied career highs in both home runs (17) and RBI (58), so the Yankees will definitely be counting on him to be a big part of the team next season, and for years to come, as he and Jacoby Ellsbury look to energize the top of the Yankees’ order so boppers like Carlos Beltran, Mark Teixeira, and Brian McCann–all of whom are expected to have bounce back seasons in 2015, have ducks on the pond when they come to the dish.
