Worth noting

• First baseman Mark Teixeira continues to take dry swings with a light fungo bat as he works his way back from a partially torn sheath in his right wrist.

Teixeira, who made the trip to Toronto and will head with the club to St. Petersburg for the series against the Rays, has had no setbacks, Girardi said. But the skipper made sure to point out that Teixeira's rehab will be a slow process.
