Swisher has low-grade strain

Tweet [1]

Nick Swisher has a low-grade stain of his left hamstring. Joe Girardi said its likely to take several days to heal, but its not necessarily a DL situation.

Girardi said the team will not add an outfielder before tomorrow’s game.

UPDATE, 5:21 p.m.: Here’s Girardi’s quick explanation of the Swisher situation from today’s postgame press conference:

“He’s got a real low-grade strain. We’re probably looking at more than a few days, but I’m not saying it’s a DL. We’ll have to see how it progresses in the next few days. He had an MRI and it’s just a real low-grade strain. … We won’t (add an outfielder) before tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes. Gardy’s eligible to come back on Thursday. We’ll see how that goes. We could try to go through (until Gardner comes back). We’ll see what happens and go from there.”
