Jason Giambi felt some tightness in his left groin when he rounded second base after Robinson Cano’s single in the fifth inning.
He is day-to-day but hopes to play tomorrow. “I’m going to come in tomorrow prepared to play,” he said. “I don’t feel anything just walking around.”
Given the cautious nature of the Yankees, it’ll be surprising is Giambi is in the lineup.
Ran into Joe Girardi in the hallway after the game. He said he had a 103 fever but thinks it has broke. He hopes to be on the bench tomorrow. He did not look good.
Bench coach Rob Thomson and all of the players said the same thing about the offense: it’s early and they’ve faced good pitchers. True enough, but the Yankees are hitting .231 and have scored 15 runs in five games.
