Brett Gardner: (Elbow) Activated From DL Staff

Update: Gardner (elbow) was officially reinstated from the DL on Tuesday, reports Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News.

Recommendation: It remains to be seen how Gardner will be used. He has taken batting practice but, with the minor league season over, did not have a chance to go on any rehabilitation stints. It seems likely that he could just be used primarily as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement as the AL East-leading Yankees make a final push to the postseason.
