The 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 Twins on Wednesday night. "We'll try to get him back after 15 days."
