Bombers bits

• Outfielder Curtis Granderson played behind Nova in Wednesday's extended spring game and homered to center field in the second inning. Granderson played two innings in center field, moved to right field for two more innings then shifted to left field after that. GIrardi said Granderson will go to Scranton on Thursday, although might not play. He will play the corner-outfield positions there in addition to center field.

• Alex Rodriguez (left hip surgery) reported to the Yankees' Himes Complex in Tampa, Fla., for his third day of work. Rodriguez went through a workout similar to his first day of baseball activities: jogging, playing catch and hitting off a tee. He left without speaking to reporters.

• Right-hander Michael Pineda (right shoulder surgery) is set to make another start in an extended spring game next Monday. General manager Brian Cashman said recently Pineda's fastball has been clocked in the mid-90 mph range. Pineda said he's been feeling good on the mound lately, but he doesn't know how far off he is from a Minor League rehab assignment.

"I don't know. Not that long, because I'm feeling good, working hard and getting ready," Pineda said.

The only bit of bad news for Pineda on Wednesday: The back passenger-side window of his SUV was shattered by a ball hit into the players' lot during batting practice.

• The Yankees entered Wednesday with a five-game losing streak at Coors Field dating back to June 20, 2002, their longest current losing streak at any opposing ballpark. It matches the Yankees' longest losing streak at a National League ballpark. They also lost five straight at Veterans Stadium in Phildelphia from Sept. 1, 1997, to June 8, 1999 -- their first five interleague road games against the Phillies.
