FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday.

Gardner is just 2-for-11 (.182) with one walk and three strikeouts against Jon Lester, so with a need to also give Carlos Beltran a breather from playing the field, Alfonso Soriano will move from DH to left field with Ichiro handling the duties in right. Gardner will be available off the bench.ANALYST: Howard Bender
