Bomber bits

• Outfielder/designated hitter Alfonso Soriano (flu) didn't work out with the Yankees again on Sunday. Girardi said Soriano's condition has improved and he hoped that Soriano, who hasn't worked out with the team since position players reported to Spring Training, would make it to Steinbrenner Field on Monday to at least go through a light workout.

• The Yankees are still working to determine when first baseman Mark Teixeira will make his Grapefruit League debut. Girardi said there's no exact date set, and Teixeira still needs to take live batting practice.

"You won't see him early on," Girardi said.

• Girardi said left-hander Nik Turley will take about a week off for precautionary reasons after being held back with a tight throwing arm.
