Bombers bits

• Catcher Chris Stewart (left groin) hit off a tee on Monday and felt some improvement, but Girardi said that he did not feel comfortable putting Stewart in a game yet. Austin Romine has started the Yankees' last three games behind the plate, making him the first Yankees rookie to do so since Francisco Cervelli (May 8-10, 2009).

• On this date in 1948, Joe DiMaggio hit for the second of his two career cycles in a 13-2 Yankees win against the White Sox in Chicago.
