After a short video review, it was ruled Wheeler left the field of play to make the catch, and the call was overturned. On the next pitch, Fuld struck out for the first out of the inning in Minnesota's eventual 6-5 loss.
"It's a boundary play, so it's reviewable," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He can't go in the dugout to catch it. It was an outstanding play. Great awareness of where he's at. It's an outstanding effort."
It marked the 10th time Gardenhire has successfully challenged a play and had it overturned in 20 tries.
