Yankee Spring Training Injury Update

Here's a quick Yankees spring training injury update.
    Pitcher Freddy Garcia had to leave Wednesdays game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning after taking an Edwin Jackson groundball between his thumb and index finger on his pitching hand. X-rays were negative but it's doubtful he will make his next schedule start. The Yankees are just going to "wait and see."
    Outfielder Nick Swisher pulled himself from Wednesdays game after feeling a slight strain in his groin. Manager Joe Giradi said, " He did the right thing coming out of the game this time of year. You don't want to risk anything. The sense that I got was that maybe if it was in the middle of the season, he might have been able to play."
    Pitcher David Robertson is working his way back and expects to be ready for opening day. Robertson suffered a bone bruise on his right foot after falling down stairs at his home.
    Eduardo Nunez is still battling a bruised right hand after getting hit by a pitch and will not pick up a bat until Saturday.
    Right-handed pitching prospect Dan Burawa 23 will be sidelined for the rest of spring training after tearing his rib cage. Last year Burawa was 5-4 with an ERA of 3.64 in 39 appearances with Class A Charleston and Class A Advanced Tampa.
