News: Gardner went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in a loss to Toronto on Sunday. Impact: Gardner hasn't had a good month, slashing .191/.280/.292 in 89 at-bats, so his fantasy owners have been waiting for a game like this. Despite a shaky August, Gardner has already set career highs in home runs (15) and RBI (54) this season, and he's chipped in 19 stolen bases to boot.(RotoWire, )

News: Gardner (ankle) went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Tigers on Wednesday. Impact: Returning after a three-game absence from the starting lineup, Gardner resumed contributing in several categories Wednesday night. Gardner and the Yankees will face a left-handed starter in three of their next four games, so he may see additional time off in the near future as a result of matchups as he's posted a .673 OPS against southpaws thus far.(RotoWire, )

News: Gardner (ankle) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Impact: As expected, Gardner will return from his three-game absence Wednesday, but he'll fall all the way down to the eight-hole with lefty David Price on the hill for Detroit. Gardner is just 2-for-20 in his career against Price. Manager Joe Girardi suggested Tuesday that Gardner may not be quite at 100 percent, so there's a chance he could require another maintenance day for his ankle in the near future.(RotoWire, )

However, after running in the field prior to the game, he hopes that he'll cleared to play in some capacity, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. Impact: Gardner's best bet is a pinch-hit appearance followed by a stint in the field, but his sore ankle must respond accordingly. In the meantime, Ichiro Suzuki is handling left field, with Carlos Beltran sliding out to right.(RotoWire, )

News: Updating a previous report, Gardner is out of the lineup Sunday due to a sore ankle, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: It initially seemed like manager Joe Girardi kept Gardner out of his starting nine Sunday in an effort to stack his lineup with right-handers against tough lefty Chris Sale, but the injury likely better explains his absence. The severity of his ailment isn't known at this time, making Gardner something of a question mark heading into the upcoming week's slate of games.(RotoWire, )
