Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner will have an MRI performed on his right wrist due to what has become an ongoing problem.

Gardner has had trouble with his wrist since June 27, when he was hit by a pitch during the Yankees interleague series with the Dodgers

Gardner says that he hasn’t “felt like it was 100 percent,” and says that, although it has not hindered his ability to bat, the nagging pain is “definitely not helping matters.”

Gardner, who had six hits in his last 27 at-bats, was pinch-hit for by Austin Kearns in the sixth inning of Saturday nights game, after he went 0-for-2 with a walk.

Gardner will not play Sunday, although he was not slated to do so anyway. He expects to have the MRI performed on Monday just before the Yankees open up a three-game set against the Rays in St. Petersburg, Fla. 

Gardner said that he “should be fine” but wants to be cautious.

Gardner, 26, is hitting .229 since the injury occurred on June 27. In that time, he has watched his batting average decline from .317 to .280.
