Bombers bits

• Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was scratched from Wednesday's game against the Orioles in Sarasota due to a stomach bug, according to Girardi.

• Cashman said that it was a "tough call" to issue infield prospect David Adams his outright release on Tuesday, but said that his hand was forced because of the rash of significant injuries the Yankees have suffered.

"He's been banged up and hurt," Cashman said. "When he's healthy, I know he can swing the bat."

Even if Adams had not been released on Tuesday, the Yankees would have eventually had to make a move with him later to clear room on the 40-man roster, according to Cashman.

• Cashman said that he will not consider moving Teixeira to the 60-day disabled list because the organization believes there is a chance he will be ready to return from his partially torn right tendon sheath before June.

"I'm not going to all of a sudden put ourselves in a position where he's ready the second week of May, but I've got to wait for it," Cashman said. "I can't do that. Those games are too important."
