The Yankees have placed Brett Gardner on the disabled list because of a bruised left elbow and a strained arm muscle.

“We will have to sit him down for a while,” Joe Girardi said after his team lost to the Twins, 6-5, on Wednesday night. “We’ll try to get him back after 15 days.”

The Yankees will playAndruw Jones and possibly Eduardo Nunez in left field in the meantime. Raul Ibanez, the team’s DH, also can play the outfield. Instead of calling up another outfielder, the Yankees are bringing up right-handed reliever Cody Eppley from Triple-A.

The full news story will be on the site shortly.
