Worth noting

• Brendan Ryan continued his rehab Sunday with Double-A Trenton, and while Girardi said he's not sure exactly what day the infielder will rejoin the Yankees from the 15-day disabled list, it could be during the club's series against the Angels in Anaheim.

"I don't think he needs much more [time]," Girardi said.

Masahiro Tanaka threw on the side Sunday, a day after picking up a win with seven innings against the Rays and taking a line drive off his left ankle in the second. Girardi said the ankle remains a non-issue.

"The one thing I think he's shown is mental toughness," Girardi said. "Physical toughness is part of it, too, but we don't have any concern with him."
