Since the beginning of the offseason, the New York Yankees have set their sights on re-signing outfielder Brett Gardner for the 2020 season. However, the Yankees aren’t the only team interested in the 36-year-old.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network is reporting multiple teams are interested in Gardner, even going as far as offering multi-year deals.
A couple teams are interested in Brett Gardner on a multiyear deal but Gardy, a Yankee since 2009, prefers to remain a Yankee. So still talking.

However, Gardner prefers to stay in the Bronx, considering he’s been with the organization since 2005. Gardner had a career-year last season, hitting .251/.325/.503 with 28 homers and 74 RBI. With Aaron Hicks out for the beginning of 2020, a Gardner/Yankees reunion seems all the more likely.
Should the Yankees and Gardner reunite, it would mark Gardner’s 13th season in pinstripes.
