Shelley Duncan and Melky Cabrera will not have their appeal heard until after the team returns to New York, likely on April 1.

That means they’ll be eligible to play on Opening Day. Bob Watson, baseball’s chief of discipline, will be in Japan for the Red Sox-Athletics series and won’t be available for a hearing until he returns.

Also, the San Diego Padres returned Rule 5 Draft selection Michael Gardner to the Yankees. A 26-year-old right-hander, Gardner appeared in six games during spring training. He allowed five runs on eights hits. Gardner was assigned to the minor-league camp.
