Derek Jeter
Played his second game since coming back from a calf injury. “It’s fine, like I told you before,” Jeter said. Girardi said he’s told Jeter not to run all out for a while.

“As we get near the end there it’s a different story,” Girardi said. “But I think we still have time and I’ll still continue to be cautious with him just to make sure we’re through it. But I felt good about today. I thought he moved better today, and I told him to be cautious, but when you see him move like he did today, you feel better that he feels better about it.”

Alex Rodriguez
Left today’s game after being hit by a pitch in the seventh inning. Joe Girardi said Rodriguez is fine and expected to play again on Tuesday.

Nick Swisher
Sat out another game with a sore groin, but Girardi said he expects Swisher to be in the game on Tuesday. “Maybe try to get him one or two at-bats on Tuesday and see how he is,” Girardi said.

Dave Robertson
Made his first appearance since bruising his right foot. It was only his second appearance of the spring, but both Robertson and Girardi said they believe there’s enough time to be ready for the season. “I felt good,” Robertson said. “Didn’t have any problems. … I haven’t felt anything (for a while).”

Joba Chamberlain
He has been officially released from St. Joseph’s Hospital. “I am optimistic that he’s going to pitch for us this year,” Girardi said.
