Bombers bits

• Jeter is scheduled to serve as the designated hitter in Tuesday's 7:05 p.m. ET game against the Orioles at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Jeter played on Monday and had been on an every-other-day schedule, but filling the DH role will allow him to avoid making a long trip for Wednesday's game against the Rays in Port Charlotte, Fla.

• Banuelos is moving closer to pitching in an exhibition game, Girardi said. Banuelos threw batting practice along with Campos on Monday, and is "a little closer" to games than Campos, according to Girardi.

• New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan visited with Girardi during Monday's game, sitting in the box seats near the first-base dugout. Girardi said that they talked about the Jets' plans for the upcoming NFL Draft.
