After an elbow injury limited Brett Gardner to just 16 games last year, the 29-year-old outfielder is looking forward to playing a more active role in the Yankees' upcoming season. 

With their power production depleted by injury and offseason moves, the Yankees will need to rely more heavily on Gardner's contributions -- like a league-leading ability to steal bases. 

As Opening Day approaches, Gardner talks about this new style of Yankees baseball, getting to play with 2012 midseason acquisition Ichiro Suzuki and his personal goals for this year. comments
