    The New York Yankees placed left fielder Brett Gardner on the 15-day disabled list due to a bruised left elbow and a strained arm muscle."We will have to sit him down for a while," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after his team lost to the Minnesota Twins, 6-5, on Wednesday night. "We'll try to get him back after 15 days."Gardner hurt the elbow while making a sliding catch in the third inning Tuesday night. After the game, he said he slightly injured his wrist, but did not mention the elbow.Prior to Wednesday's game, he took batting practice and said he felt fine, but after taking more swings in the batting cage about a half-hour before first pitch, the issues returned.
