Nick Swisher was smiling when he walked in the clubhouse this afternoon. His MRI showed the same thing as last time, but this time they were able to pinpoint the location of the inflamation. He got a cortisone shot and sounds as hopeful as he’s been in weeks.
“It was just exciting to get the answers you were looking for,” Swisher said.
Swisher was told it might take 48 hours to feel the full effect of the shot. He’s not sure whether he can pinch hit tonight, and he’s not sure when he’ll be back in the lineup.
“When I can be out there, I promise you I’ll be out there,” he said.
