The New York Yankees hosted their fourth intrasquad game on Monday evening, just nine days before the start of the regular season.

Management is still shaking out their summer camp roster to find their top 30 players, who will be taken into the season.

The outfield has been a big question this year, as Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks were all projected to miss a nice chunk of the regular season before COVID-19 shut down the MLB.

The Yankees retained veteran Brett Gardner to supplement injuries. He signed a one-year, $12.5 million contract after hitting a career-high, 28 homers.

At 36 years old, Gardner should theoretically be taking steps back due to age, but he showed off his athleticism in left field during the game.

Aside from his great home run totals, he had a .251 with a career-high 74 RBIs as well. While he did strike out 108 times, the veteran still contains the ability to play at a high-level. He is an outfield Maestro and can cover every position adequately. That is a primary reason the Yankees elected to retain him on a deal worth more than his contract in 2019 ($7.5 million).
