• Catcher Francisco Cervelli has been taking light, dry swings in Tampa, and Girardi said he'll likely work up to hitting off a tee and taking soft toss shortly. He's rehabbing a broken right hand suffered on April 26.

• Girardi announced on Friday that Ivan Nova will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre to start Sunday's game against the Rays, but he said he doesn't yet know whether Nova will stay with the Yankees after the game or be optioned back to the Minors. There has also not been any announcement made about who will be sent down to make room for Nova.
