Bombers bits

• Shortstop Derek Jeter was limited to working out indoors on Thursday at the team's complex in Tampa, Fla., due to inclement weather. Jeter has not seen game action since his surgically repaired left ankle felt sore following four at-bats in a March 23 Minor League contest.

• Right-hander Chien-Ming Wang is scheduled to pitch in an extended spring training game on Thursday at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Fla.

• On this date in 1989, Yankees starter Tommy John set a Major League record by pitching in his 26th big league season (a mark that was later broken by Nolan Ryan). John allowed two runs in seven innings, earning career win No. 287 in a 4-2 victory over the Twins.

• The Yankees granted right-hander David Aardsma his unconditional release on Thursday. Aardsma, 31, had a 3.52 ERA in eight spring appearances, but he was designated for assignment because the team preferred Shawn Kelley, who could offer multiple innings of relief.
