Bombers bits

Brian McCann was a late scratch from the Yankees' lineup on Saturday. Girardi had expected McCann to play in the game after the veteran catcher sat out Friday's contest with a sore foot.

"He felt pretty decent yesterday, but it was also a day game after a night game," Girardi said earlier on Saturday morning. "That's why we gave him the day off."

McCann is listed as day to day and is not expected to miss any more time. Francisco Cervelli replaced him in Saturday's lineup.
