Update 11:00 AM: No Swisher in Thursday’s lineup.

Via Marc Craig, Nick Swisher left tonight’s game in the 7th inning due to bicep tightness. Chad Jennings at Lo Hud covered this minor story in more detail, but here’s just a brief recap.

  • Swisher felt his bicep become a little sore a few weeks ago, but the pain subsided.
  • Swisher himself offered this quote:
  • “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” Swisher said. “Just get a little ice on it.”
  • Joe Girardi said that Swisher will be day-to-day.

I really don’t think that this is a big deal at all. After watching Joe Girardi take a correct, conservative approach this year, expect Swisher to get the day off against Justin Verlander. The weather isn’t supposed to be that great, so there might not be a game after all.
