DETROIT -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Nick Swisher is day to day with sore left biceps.

Swisher left the second game of a doubleheader in the eighth inning because of the injury Wednesday night against the Detroit Tigers.

Girardi says Swisher has been bothered by the soreness for a while and did something to aggravate it in the 8-0 win over Detroit. Swisher was 0 for 3 in the victory, dropping his average to .297, after going 1 of 4 in the loss during the day.
