Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he had no second thoughts about giving Derek Jeter the day off, even though the offense has been struggling in losing the first three games of the series.

"You have to make sure your guys stay healthy," Girardi said. "It's hot at home. We had a hot week. He played three games in a row here. I only DH'ed him once in the last long time. He played in the All-Star Game. I thought if we were going to give a day, today was probably the day."

Girardi confirmed that Joba Chamberlain's next rehab appearance is scheduled for Tuesday. Girardi said he doesn't yet know when Chamberlain would throw after that. The final hurdle for Chamberlain is pitching on back-to-back days.

"I'm curious to see how he responds back-to-back, to see if the stuff stays the same," Girardi said.

Chamberlain, who is recovering from elbow and ankle surgeries, has pitched six innings in four rehab appearances, allowing two hits and one earned run. He has seven strikeouts.
