Bombers bits

• Phil Hughes continued his aquatic rehab at the Yankees' Minor League complex on Wednesday and "continues to progress," according to manager Joe Girardi. Hughes is expected to resume throwing in about a week.

• Ichiro Suzuki went 3-for-3 and JR Murphy hit a two-run homer on Tuesday, but Girardi seemed most impressed by right-hander Jose Ramirez, who threw two scoreless innings in his start against the Phillies. 

"A young man, starting his first game here, seeing [Ryan] Howard and [Jimmy] Rollins, he threw strikes," Girardi said. "He did a nice job. He's got a live arm, a really good changeup, saw a good slider today. Good stuff."
