at Yankee Stadium on April 16, 2016 in the Bronx borough of New York City. Seattle Mariners defeated the New York Yankees 3-2.

Brett Gardner scratched from lineup

Brett Gardner, who was originally batting second and playing left field tonight against the A’s, has been scratched from the lineup with what’s being called a “stiff neck”, according to the Yankees. Starlin Castro will now move into the two-hole, with Aaron Hicks stepping in to play left and hit ninth.

Joe Girardi said that Gardner’s neck has been stiff since he fell into the stands at Rogers Centre last week going after a foul ball. He re-aggrivated it last night while trying to make a diving catch in the left-centerfield gap

Gardner has gotten off to a good start this season, hitting .308/.438/.436. His OBP is tops among Yankee regulars, and his OPS ranks third.
