Bombers bits

• Derek Jeter, who made his Spring Training debut Saturday, is expected to play again Monday against the Cardinals at George M. Steinbrenner Field. He will once again serve as the Yankees' designated hitter, but he could get his first start at shortstop as soon as Wednesday.

• Girardi said closer Mariano Rivera, who had a busy day Saturday between announcing his upcoming retirement and making his Grapefruit League debut, was feeling good Sunday after pitching in a game for the first time since April 30, 2012. Rivera will likely throw a bullpen session on Monday and then make his second Spring Training appearance a few days after that.

• Girardi unveiled his starting pitching schedule for the upcoming week. The Yankees will start Kuroda on Monday, Ivan Nova on Tuesday, Andy Pettitte on Wednesday (his first Spring Training start), Sabathia on Friday, Kuroda in the early game on Saturday and David Phelps in the late game and Nova on Sunday.

Girardi didn't know who would start Thursday against the Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla. That could mean another start for Adam Warren or Jose Ramirez.

• Right-handers Phil Hughes (bulging disk in upper back) and David Aardsma (groin) are scheduled to throw bullpen sessions on Monday. Both pitchers threw in the bullpen on Saturday.
