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.

    It’s just about that time of spring when the little nicks and gnats start hitting teams. Carpenter of St Louis is out for a while. Look for Oswalt to sign there. NYYs have some young, cheap quality and quantity waiting to be moved for the right price.

    Is Jon Hack-Man the worst, most bitter writer outside of Pete Abraham?
    You’ve totally misnamed yourself. A genius you’re not. Not just for this pearl of wisdom, but, about everything else you’ve posted.
    No . You. Are.

    Jesus. heyman has no shame. He now slams newsday, not realizing that he was part of the problem. He’s out to pull CBS and MLB Network down with him.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good NY radio station that talks Yankees all day (or parts) that is available via TuneIn app?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pineda starting in the minors? Anything’s possible, I suppose. But I’m told that within organization, that option “hasn’t been discussed.”

    Dwight Howard is such a flake. Seriously.

    You maybe even find something in your closet that are left then and can recycling. Sure no one can deny that you are or not trendy. Remember to find shoes that are the best detail to make your dress stand out.

    Christian Louboutin discount has been emphasized the practical, so even if it’s a plexiglass or change. It is the greatest usefulness.

    This concept has been very successful so far. We are somewhat still in the experimental phase though.
