Swisher goes through complete workout
KANSAS CITY -- Nick Swisher has an outside chance of returning to the Yankees' lineup on Sunday for the club's series finale at Kauffman Stadium.

Swisher jogged onto the field for batting practice and went through a complete workout, including hitting, fielding and running the bases, to test the tight left hamstring that has kept him out since April 29.

Playing Swisher on Sunday is "something we'll have to think about, talk to the doctors and trainers and see what they think," manager Joe Girardi said.

Brett Gardner, who remains on the disabled list with a strained right elbow, took batting practice on the field Saturday and could do so again on Sunday. If that goes well, Gardner would be scheduled for at least two Minor League rehab games.
