Bombers bits

• Alfredo Aceves, who threw 72 pitches in relief of CC Sabathia on Sunday, likely will not be available until Friday at Milwaukee. Girardi suggested that he could use Aceves for a brief outing on Wednesday against the Angels in an emergency.

Girardi also suggested that Aceves could be in play to pick up a start after hurling 5 1/3 innings of scoreless, three-hit ball against the Rays.

"We haven't really talked about it, but anytime someone pitches well over distance, it's going to trigger a thought," Girardi said.

• The Yankees have announced their probable starters for the weekend series against the Brewers at Miller Park. Masahiro Tanaka will start on Friday, Sabathia will go on Saturday, and David Phelps is scheduled to pitch on Sunday.
