In the third inning, Joe Girardi removed Nick Swisher from the game with a tight left hamstring. Swisher left after walking against Max Scherzer. He is going for an MRI.

Originally, Swisher just trotted down to first base before Joe Girardi and trainer Steve Donohue check up on him. At first, he stayed in the game, but a moment later Girardi took Swisher out. Andruw Jones replaced him. Jones played left, while Raul Ibanez moved to right.

Swisher struggled with a groin injury during spring training.
