Nick Swisher out of Yankees lineup with hamstring injury

2 Comments

Nick Swisher, who left yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury, is out of the Yankees’ lineup for tonight’s matchup with the Orioles.

In his place the Yankees are starting utility infielder Eduardo Nunez in left field, with Raul Ibanez shifting from left field to right field.

Nunez has been playing professional baseball since 2006 and has a grand total of one career inning as a left fielder, while Ibanez’s best position defensively is designated hitter.

Good luck, Hiroki Kuroda!
