• Right-handed reliever David Aardsma, who has been out all season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last July, was shut down on Friday after three rehab outings and is heading to New York to undergo tests on his right elbow. Girardi didn't know the specifics of those tests, just that Aardsma "came up a little sore."

• CC Sabathia, on the disabled list with a mild left groin strain, played catch at Tropicana Field before Monday night's game.
