Nick Swisher went through treatment all day today. He iced his left knee and tried to get the swelling to go down, but when he tested it on the field, it was clear he couldn’t play. Joe Girardi said Swisher wasn’t even available to pinch hit.
“It was better,” Swisher said. “Just couldn’t get it moving the way I wanted to.”
Although his right fielder was completely unavailable tonight, Girardi said he expects Swisher to be back in the lineup on Friday.
“Oh yeah,” Swisher said. “No doubt.”
