— Francisco Cervelli was sent out of camp today with an upper respiratory ailment, the same one that bothered Christian Garcia and Brian Bruney earlier. Joe Girardi is trying to quarantine his clubhouse, sending him home after a doctor’s appointment today. Jason Johnson was excused from camp today with a personal issue.
— The Yankees are not expecting anyone to be late this spring with visa problems.
— Girardi said he is OK with keeping both Xavier Nady and Nick Swisher around: “I don’t think you can have too many players. You don’t know what’s going to happen in the next seven weeks, if we come out of Spring Training completely healthy. You can never have too many players.”
