Loser: Brett Gardner

The longest-tenured Yankee has had a rough start to his 13th season in Pinstripes. Brett Gardner has yet to record a hit for the Bombers this season as he is 0-11 with a walk so far.

The 36-year old has made three starts, including on opening day but has not been able to make the most of his opportunities, which could lead to more playing time for Mike Tauchman, Miguel Andujar and perhaps Clint Fraizer if the Yankees decide to call him up from the taxi squad.

Gardner smashed 28 home runs and has been a mainstay in the Yankees lineup over the past decade, but so far, 2020 is off to a rough start for the veteran.
