After the game, Joe Girardi said Nick Johnson’s back is a little more stiff than expected. Girardi indicated that Johnson thought it would loosen after some time in the whirlpool but that didn’t happen.

The Yankees now expect Johnson to miss tomorrow’s game. Monday’s scheduled off day will gives him an addition day of rest.

“I expect him back on Tuesday,” Girardi said.

Johnson said he’s not concerned about this becoming a long-term problem.
