Bombers bits

• Infielder Brendan Ryan (cervical spine nerve) is continuing to work out at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Fla. The Yankees have talked about getting Ryan 50 to 60 at-bats before activating him. Girardi estimated that Ryan has had about 20 at-bats so far, and he could be activated in a week to 10 days.

• Catcher Francisco Cervelli (right hamstring strain) is in New York and is performing some light activity, but otherwise is not close to baseball activities. Cervelli was placed on the 60-day disabled list on April 15, retroactive to April 14.

David Ortiz's home run off Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday traveled 482 feet, according to ESPN Stats and Info. That makes it the longest home run by a Red Sox batter in the last nine seasons.

• On this date in 2000, Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams become the first pair of teammates in Major League history to homer from both sides of the plate in the same game. The Yankees defeated the Blue Jays, 10-7, in Toronto.
