8:38pm: The Yankees announced that Swisher left the game with tightness in his right groin. Last week it was his left groin that was bothering him. Swisher told Erik Boland that there are no tests plans and he will rest for “a couple of days.”

8:05pm: Nick Swisher left tonight’s game after reaching base on an error in the third inning. This was a first game back after dealing with a groin issue, and he walked off the field gingerly. Justin Maxwell took his spot on base. We’ll update this post with more info once it’s available.

    We’ve now entered week 89 of Spring Training, where the only things of note are injuries that we hope aren’t serious.

    This is almost worse than no baseball.

      Almost.

      Key word, that.

    I just hope he takes his time and heals up completely before he returns.
