Swisher not quite ready

Nick Swisher took batting practice off Andy Pettitte this afternoon, but manager Joe Girardi said that he “didn’t get the feeling he was completely ready to go” as he comes back from a sore groin.

The plan is now to have Swisher try to play Friday night against the Phillies instead, and Swisher could get at-bats in a Minor League game tomorrow. Girardi said that he is “a little bit” concerned that Swisher won’t be set to go for the season opener on April 6, but added, “My sense is he’ll be ready.”
