Update: Swisher day-to-day after MRI reveals strain


11:48pm: Joe Girardi confirmed that Swisher has a mild strain of … something. Groin, quad, who knows. He should be able to avoid the DL and the Yankees are just going to play shorthanded for the final four games of the West Coast trip.

6:32pm: Via Marc Carig, outfielder Nick Swisher went for an MRI on his left hip flexor and will be out at least until the Yankees get to Seattle on Monday. The results of the MRI aren’t available yet. Hopefully he can avoid the DL, the last thing the Yankees need is to lose another outfielder.

    Hopefully? MLB Trade Rumors has the Yanks kicking the tires of Rick Ankiel. Can’t Chris Dickerson hit .230? Shane Patrick Victorino I get but Rick Ankiel????!!!!! Let Swish take a vacation and get Dickerson up here fast so he can prove himself in the meantime. I really don’t see Ibanez & Jones keeping up their pace past the sunmmer.
