Swisher's tight groin not serious concern
VIERA, Fla. -- Freddy Garcia wasn't the only Yankees player who left Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays early. Nick Swisher suffered a slight strain of his groin and pulled himself from the proceedings.

Joe Girardi said Swisher just felt "tightness" and did not seem to think it is a serious concern.

"He did the right thing coming out of the game this time of year," Girardi said. "You don't want to risk anything. The sense that I got was that maybe if it was the middle of the season, he might have been able to play."

In other injury news, setup man David Robertson, who suffered a bone bruise in his right foot when he fell down a flight of stairs at his home, continues to work his way back to action. Robertson did not run on a treadmill Thursday, as he had Wednesday, but he did play catch.

And utility man Eduardo Nunez, who has been out with a bruised hand, is not scheduled to pick up a bat until Saturday.
