• The Yankees entered play Tuesday 22-17 on the road but just 13-16 at Yankee Stadium.

‬‬‬ "We have not hit the ball out of the ballpark a whole lot. That probably has something to do with it," said Girardi.

Michael Pineda, still recovering from soreness behind his right shoulder, is supposed to throw Saturday. On Friday, Girardi mentioned that Pineda would likely not be back to the rotation until August.

‬‬‬ • With Shawn Kelley back in the Yankees' bullpen, reliever Adam Warren is a potential prospect to join a depleted starting rotation, but Girardi likes him in the bullpen for now.

‬ "Warren's been a vital part of our bullpen," said Girardi.‬‬ "He really stepped up when Shawn Kelley went down. He's a guy that can give you multiple innings down there, but as I said, we'll continue to evaluate our staff."
