• CC Sabathia reported no problems with his left elbow after turning in 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball in New York's 3-1 victory over the Indians on Friday.

"That's really positive," Girardi said. "Obviously, it's important that he stays feeling good. You want him to be able to do his side session [Sunday] and come out of that feeling good, but that's really positive."

• The Yankees have listed right-hander David Phelps as their scheduled starter for Monday's game against the Blue Jays in place of Ivan Nova. Phil Hughes and Sabathia will start on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.


 • Alex Rodriguez has resumed swinging a bat with both hands, Girardi said, and the third baseman can also graduate to hitting off a tee and soft-toss pitching.

• On this date in 2011, the Yankees became the first team to hit three grand slams in a game, as Robinson Cano, Martin and Curtis Granderson did so in a 22-9 rout of the Athletics.
