Gardner was sore a day after he had four at-bats in a three-inning simulated game and was being kept off the field Monday. The speedy outfielder has already had two setbacks in his recovery from a strained elbow that has sidelined him since April 18.

 “It is puzzling,” Girardi said. “Our hope is still that he will get through this.”

Gardner’s agent, Joe Bick, told Newsday the outfielder may have an MRI on Tuesday.

“Why it won’t go away is a mystery to better medical minds than mine,” Bick told the paper. “Three of the most respected doctors in the country agreed on the diagnosis and the treatment, and it still hasn’t gone away. Certainly, (Gardner’s) level of frustration is extremely high.”
