Flu-like symptoms sideline Gardner
NEW YORK -- Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is battling flu-like symptoms, according to manager Joe Girardi, but he could be available off the bench in Saturday's contest against the Angels.

With Alex Rodriguez in the DH spot, Girardi slotted Andruw Jones in left field against Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson. Girardi plans to play Gardner against some lefties this year, but through seven games, he had started against only the Orioles' Wei-Yin Chen.

"Gardy was pretty sick last night," Girardi said. "It kind of made my decision on what I was going to do easy today. He'll be available."
