Gardner to have surgery, Aceves breaks clavicle

Gardner to have surgery, Aceves breaks clavicle

NEW YORK -- Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is scheduled to have right wrist surgery Tuesday.

Gardner's right wrist was a lingering issue last season, with his difficulties beginning after he was hit by a fastball from the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw on June 27 in Los Angeles. Gardner needed a cortisone shot on the wrist in September to quell the discomfort.

The Yankees said that Gardner will have the surgery at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Currently envisioned as New York's Opening Day left fielder, Gardner is expected to be ready for the beginning of Spring Training.

Additionally, Yankees right-hander Alfredo Aceves had surgery to repair a fractured left clavicle sustained in a bicycle riding accident in Mexico, the team announced.

Aceves had the surgery Tuesday in New York, performed by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. Including the prescribed six weeks of initial rest, Aceves is expected to require three months for total rehabilitation.
