Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher will miss his seventh straight game on Saturday afternoon with a strained left hip flexor.

“We talked and (manager Joe Girardi) decided one extra day would be best,” said Swisher, who said he thought on Friday he’d be back in the lineup on Saturday afternoon. “I just don’t want to go backwards.”

Swisher said he feels good, and will be available to pinch hit against the Red Sox if need be.
