Swisher feeling less soreness in groin

TAMPA, Fla. -- Nick Swisher's sore groin is improving and the Yankees outfielder could return to action this weekend, manager Joe Girardi said.

"He said he feels pretty decent," Girardi said. "I'll talk to [head athletic trainer] Steve Donohue a lot [Friday] and see, do we try to put him in before the weekend is over or do you wait until next week? He said he felt OK."

Swisher felt a tug in his groin running out a ground ball on Tuesday against the Pirates and has received treatment at George M. Steinbrenner Field in each of the last three days.
