• Swisher wont play in Seattle

    While the Yankees had originally hoped that Nick Swisher would be ready to go when they traveled north to Seattle for an upcoming three game series with the Mariners, those hopes were dashed yesterday when Joe Girardi announced that the Yankees right fielder would sit out the entire series. Girardi indicated that Swishers strained hip flexor had improved since Saturday, but that the team wanted to avoid making it any worse by playing him too soon.
