• John Ryan Murphy has caught all four of Vidal Nuno's starts this season. Girardi explained that Nuno's starts have lined up well with opposing left-handers; the Angels started southpaw Hector Santiago on Wednesday, and McCann had the night off.
"We're seeing so many left-handers," Girardi said. "If you're seeing a left-hander once a week, you'd pick that day to give Mac off. We're seeing a lot, so I just chose to keep those two together."
• Girardi said that the Yankees are revisiting the shift play that occurred in the third inning of Tuesday's game, when third baseman Yangervis Solarte was charged with a throwing error on a Collin Cowgill sacrifice. Because the infield was shifted, Mark Teixeira had trouble getting back to first base, and Brian Roberts was too far away to make the play.
"We're getting that worked out; I'll leave it at that," Girardi said.
• McCann said that there are no lingering hard feelings between him and Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez, against whom the Yankees will open a three-game series on Friday. The players were involved in a benches-clearing incident last Sept. 25, when McCann was with the Braves.
"I respect the guy, I respect the way he plays," McCann said. "He plays hard every single night. It's way, way over."
