• Girardi said he expects to be fined, without further punishment, for his fifth-inning ejection on Sunday in Detroit, in which he disputed a call with third-base umpire Tim Welke.

"I talked to [Major League Baseball's] Joe [Torre] a little bit today. Just told him my side of the story," Girardi said.

• Alex Rodriguez, who is on the disabled list recovering from a fractured left hand, made New York's trip to Toronto and took one-handed swings with his right hand off a tee prior to the game. Girardi said he still doesn't have a clear picture of when Rodriguez will be back.

"The next X-ray will probably give us a better idea how close we are to getting him back, when we get home," Girardi said.
