Analysis: Girardi said he's concerned about the 36-year-old switch-hitter, who missed two games May 10-11 because of a neck problem and was given shots in an attempt to alleviate the discomfort. Girardi said the three-time All-Star told the team Wednesday his neck "kind of locked up." He had an MRI that looked similar to one from last year, according to the manager.
