Bombers bits

• Yankees outfielder Brennan Boesch (sore left rib cage) is "feeling good," according to Cashman. Boesch told the team that they were being "overly cautious" in holding him out of action on Sunday, but he could return to play on Tuesday.

• Cashman said that he has been impressed by the work ethic shown by first baseman Mark Teixeira (strained right forearm), who has been working out in the gym at George M. Steinbrenner Field as he hopes to rejoin the team in the middle of May.

"He's a monster," Cashman said. "He's going through all this different stuff with his legs and his arms. He's making sure that whatever he can do while being down because of the wrist or the hand, that he can close the gap as best he possibly can on every other aspect."

• The Yankees announced that infielders Walter Ibarra, Addison Maruszak and Jose Pirela have been reassigned to Minor League camp.
