Bombers bits

Mark Teixeira took batting practice and hit off a tee from both sides of the plate on Monday. Girardi said that Teixeira took about 90 swings and "looked pretty normal, to me, from both sides."

• Right-handed reliever Yoshinori Tateyama, 38, reported to camp on Monday after being delayed by a visa issue. Tateyama earned a non-roster invitation after compiling a 1.70 ERA in 21 appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season.
