Nick Swisher, nursing a hip flexor strain, missed his sixth straight game. Joe Girardi said there's a chance he will be back in the lineup Saturday. "We are making sure he's as close to 100 percent as possible," he said. "When you have slight strains, you have to make sure that you don't have a setback. We don't want a setback and I don't think we are being overly cautious. It's just not quite ready yet."
