A few assorted items from Yankeeland:
• A-Rod himself will be in Monument Park tomorrow from 4:10-4:30 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m., so hustle.
• Damaso Marte was seen today by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Dr. Andrews concurred with the previous evaluations by Yankees team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad as well as Dr. David Altchek, and Marte will return to Tampa, Fla., to continue his throwing program.
Marte has what is being called shoulder inflammation. He has been out since April.
• A.J. Burnett’s suspension appeal was postponed until June 30. MLB’s discipline system runs as slowly as Hideki Matsui.
• Robinson Cano will serve as “Principal for a Day” for PS 55 in the Bronx tomorrow. Hey kids, today’s lesson is always swing at the first pitch and never let your best friend get on You Tube.
