Brett Gardner Returning To Yankees On One-Year, $4 Million Deal


Many assumed the New York Yankees unofficially had moved on from outfielder Brett Gardner last month when they traded with the San Diego Padres for Greg Allen, that apparently isn't the case.

Gardner agreed to a one-year deal, $4 million deal Friday to remain with the only club for which he has played since he made his MLB debut back in 2008—and the contract includes a player option for 2021.

Gardner hit .223 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 49 regular-season contests last year. He holds a career batting average of .259, and he tallied 28 homers and 74 RBI in 2019.

It will be great to see Number 11 back in pinstripes this spring.
