Big Injury News Of The Day- Garcia, Swisher

If you haven't been following the updates on the AB4AR Facebook Page (hint, hint, "Like" it), here's what you missed today.

- Freddy Garcia left his start against Toronto after taking a comebacker off his pitching hand.  He immediately walked off the mound and into the clubhouse with the Yankee training staff trailing him, which is never a good sign, and was taken for precautionary x-rays.  The x-rays turned out to be negative, which is a good sign, but with the reported amount of swelling in the hand it's almost certain that Freddy will miss at least one start.

- The other injury casualty in the game today was Swish, who left the game early with tightness in his left groin.  There weren't any tests done and no more are scheduled, so it doesn't appear to be too big a deal.  Swish wasn't scheduled to make the trip for tomorrow's game anyway, so a day of rest might be enough to take care of this.

- Not at all bad news, though.  D-Rob spent 30 minutes on a treadmill today and didn't report any pain in his bruised foot.  He could be able to throw a bullpen session some time this weekend.
