That team from the east coast’s News/Notes:

  • SS Derek Jeter played in his second rehab game at Class AA Trenton and then got on a plane to rejoin that team from the east coast in Cleveland for tonights game. Jeter, out since June 14 because of a strained right calf, tested his leg by bunting in his last at-bat Sunday.

  • RHP Ivan Nova was sent down to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday because that team from the east coast want to continue to start regularly. The club needed to open a rotation spot for RHP Phil Hughes and didn’t want Nova to be a long man in the bullpen.

  • SS Eduardo Nunez, who has opened some eyes while filling in for Derek Jeter and was 7-for-8 in two Subway Series games against the Mets, sat out Sunday’s game because of a tight right hamstring. That team from the east coast must not think it’s serious because Nunez was not slated for any tests, manager Joe Girardi said.

  • CF Curtis Granderson, SS Derek Jeter, 3B Alex Rodriguez and 2B Robinson Cano were all elected to start in the All-Star game, and RHP Mariano Rivera and C Russell Martin were added as reserves. There were several notable team from the east coast “snubs”, too: RHP David Robertson, LHP CC Sabathia and 1B Mark Teixeira.

  • 1B Mark Teixeira was invited to participate in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star game, but he declined because he was not picked for the All-Star team.

  • RHP Mariano Rivera blew a save chance against the Mets on Sunday, snapping a streak of 26 straight saves against National League teams (including two in the 2009 World Series). It was tied for the second-longest streak in interleague history with Troy Percival, trailing Eric Gagne’s streak of 29 in a row.
