It was a tale of two halves for the man though. With a .861 OPS before the ALL – Star Break, he made the American League squad in Cincinnati for the Yanks. His .592 OPS post ALL – Star Break was a main reason the club struggled in the second half of the year. Gardy did battle a wrist injury in the last few months. He is signed for the next four years. I believe the club may go as far as he and Ellsbury in 2016. His average dipped all the way to .259 after starting the season near .300
