``I don't want to be on national TV with a machine hooked up to my knee,'' Gardenhire said before Minnesota hosted the Detroit Tigers.
After having the operation Friday and monitoring the game that night from his office, Gardenhire sounded resigned to the same setup Saturday. Team spokesman Dustin Morse confirmed that Gardenhire stayed upstairs once the game began.
Though he made it down to the field before batting practice and reported that he felt better than the day before, Gardenhire was still hurting. Every 20 minutes or so, he was supposed wrap his knee in a cold compression device - which would have been difficult to arrange in the dugout.
Third base coach Scott Ullger is in charge when Gardenhire isn't.
