Swisher day-to-day with biceps tightness

DETROIT – Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher exited Wednesday’s 8-0 victory over the Tigers early with tightness in his left biceps and is considered day-to-day.
Swisher said that he felt the initial tightness a few weeks ago, but it went away. It reappeared taking batting practice before the second game of Wednesday’s day-night twinbill, and Swisher felt something when he swung in the seventh inning.
“I just felt a little tug,” Swisher said. “I feel fine, I’m moving around, but I’ll just come in here early and get some treatment and see how it feels. I’m not the type of guy that likes to come out of games.”
Swisher said that he does not feel anything when throwing, only when hitting. He has been applying heat therapy to the biceps and will see athletic assistant trainer Steve Donohue early Thursday. 
“That’s the greatest thing, I think we’ve got the best training staff in the game right here,” Swisher said. “These guys know what they’re doing. I’m just going to listen to them.”

The offense has completely disappeared. Granderson sucks Gardner, Vazquez blows and can’t pitch in New York despite what his last start showed. I wouldn’t be surprised if CC is gone by the end of the season.

Hughes was great his last start, but the frenchman can still make him bend over and take it up the ***!!!
Bring back Giambi and dump Johnson.
