Accordingly to RAB, Gardner passed through waivers. I understand why the Yankees would want to see if they could get him through, but why would no one claim him? What's the downside? Couldn't everyone use him, and he is on a team friendly deal. What am I missing?
Doesn't it mean that if no one claimed him, no one wants him? And unless the Yanks threw in a ton of cash, does this mean no one would trade for him?
