Gardner intends to play in 2022.
Gardner had his contract option declined by the Yankees and did not sign before the lockout ended. His agent said he hopes to be with the Yankees in 2022, but could sign elsewhere. Gardner could provide outfield depth, but likely won't make a huge impact for Fantasy leagues. Last season Gardner slashed .222/.327/.362 in 461 plate appearances with ten home runs and four stolen bases.
Brett Gardner and the New York Yankees both declined the veteran outfielder's mutual option for 2022.
Gardner, 38, posted 1.4 fWAR while slashing .222/.327/.362 through 140 games this past season. He'll now hit the open market but could quite possibly return to the Yankees, with whom he has spent his entire 17-year pro baseball career.
Brett Gardner went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Friday's 8-0 win over Cleveland.
Gardner has struggled at the plate most of the season but has come alive in September hitting .298 with a .365 on-base percentage, three home runs, and 11 RBI. The 38-year-old outfielder is worth picking up in deeper fantasy leagues while he is hot.
Brett Gardner went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a run in Wednesday's victory over the Orioles by a 4-3 score.
Gardner has struggled at the plate most of the season but is heating up and over his last nine games is hitting .355 with two homers, seven RBI, and six runs scored. The 38-year-old outfielder is worth rostering in AL-only formats and deeper leagues.
Brett Gardner went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer on Wednesday as the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays by a 6-3 score.
Gardner is hitting just .217 on the season with seven home runs, 29 RBI, and 39 runs scored. The veteran outfielder no longer has an everyday role and is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
