• Infielder Brendan Ryan (oblique) is scheduled to return to action on Thursday against the Red Sox in Fort Myers, Fla. Ryan has been limited to just eight spring at-bats by the injury.
• Catcher Francisco Cervelli went 2-for-3 with a triple on Tuesday against the Red Sox, raising his average to .500 in 28 Grapefruit League at-bats.
"I feel good. I think the more I play, I feel better," Cervelli said. "They'll decide what they want to do. I just come here every day to play. I show up, I get my bat, I get my equipment and that's it."
• First baseman Mark Teixeira had a two-run single on Tuesday and continues to be encouraged by the strength of his surgically repaired right wrist.
"I feel like it's getting stronger, and it will continue getting stronger all year," Teixeira said. "And that's the exciting part: it's not like this is as good as it's going to get. It'll keep getting stronger all year."
