No concern despite MRI of Swisher's groin
TAMPA, Fla. -- Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher was sent for a precautionary MRI exam on his sore left groin after completing his workout on Friday, manager Joe Girardi said.

"I think they're just being cautious," Girardi said. "He did all his running and did all his hitting. I'm not sure; I guess he felt that it moved a little bit. This could just be soreness and they're ruling everything out, but he said he felt good today."

Swisher said that he felt soreness after coming out of the batter's box on Wednesday in Dunedin, Fla., against the Blue Jays, and said that he would take advantage of Spring Training to give the injury more rest.

"On that second step, something tugged a little bit," Swisher said. "I got scared, so I just shut it down from there, but no big deal. I'll be back in there [Saturday] or the next day. Game 7 [of the World Series], I'm in there. It's not like it's one of those things."
