Bombers bits

• CC Sabathia is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field, tuning up for a potential start against the Indians in Cleveland on Friday, the first day he is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Girardi said that he wants to see how Sabathia comes out of the session before locking into a date and added, "If everything is good, we'll decide where we're going to slot him [in the rotation]."

• Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki entered play on Monday having hit safely in 21 of his 23 starts with the club. He batted .526 (10-for-19) in seven games on New York's homestand.

• On this date in 1938, Lou Gehrig hits his 23rd -- and final -- career grand slam off Buck Ross in the first inning of an 11-3 win at Philadelphia's Shibe Park. The 23 career slams have since been equaled by Alex Rodriguez, who accomplished the feat on June 13.
