Yankees’ Brett Gardner To Wear Protective Ring On His Thumb

From Marc Carig :

Every time he’s swung the bat since spraining his left thumb last week in Baltimore, Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner has used a protective plastic ring that fits around his thumb.

He admits that the ring still feels strange on his hand, especially when he’s in the act of swinging the bat. Like most big-league players, Gardner would rather not deal with anything that could inhibit his swing.

Nevertheless, Gardner said he plans to use the added protection for the rest of the season.

“It’s a little awkward and uncomfortable,” said Gardner, who missed two games before returning to action on Saturday. “But anything to stay on the field.”


I just hope it works. They can’t afford having him hurt himself more seriously and then be forced into season-ending surgery.
