Still waiting for Garcia test results, plus Swisher and Robertson updates

Joe Girardi said the Yankees are still waiting for results from Freddy Garcia’s x-ray. He was hit in the right hand a one-hopper in the fourth inning today, and he left the game immediately.

“His hand swelled up a lot right away,” Girardi said. “I don’t know what that means.”

Garcia was pitching well, and catcher Francisco Cervelli said the ball wasn’t hit especially hard, but when he saw Garcia walk away so quickly, Cervelli believed it was serious.

“If he walks away, forget it,” Cervelli said. “Because that guy likes to throw no matter what happens.”

The Yankees should know more by the end of the day.


Nick Swisher came out of today’s game because of tightness in his left groin. He seemed to be moving around the clubhouse with no problems after the game, and Girardi said no tests are scheduled. Swisher wasn’t scheduled to make tomorrow’s road trip anyway.

“We’ll see how he is tomorrow then see what the course of action is,” Girardi said.


Dave Robertson was able to jog on a treadmill for 30 minutes with no soreness in his bruised right foot. Girardi said it’s entirely possible he’ll be able to throw off a mound — in a bullpen, not in a game — at some point this weekend.
