TAMPA, Fla. -- Brennan Boesch was seen by a Yankees team doctor and checked out fine, according to manager Joe Girardi.

The outfielder asked for a heat pack for his left rib cage after a two-hour bus ride to Fort Myers on Friday, raising a red flag for the Yankees' training staff.

Boesch was scratched from Friday's game against the Twins as a precaution and is not expected to play until Tuesday or Wednesday, according to Girardi.
