• The Yankees held a HOPE Week Alumni Reunion before Friday's game, inviting all of the honorees from 2009 to 2012 back to Yankee Stadium.

• The Class A Tampa Yankees' game was rained out for the second consecutive night, meaning third baseman Alex Rodriguez won't be playing a rehab game on Friday. He had been scheduled to play seven innings at third base. Tampa has another home game on Saturday, but there's no word as to what Rodriguez's next step will be.
