CHICAGO -- Derek Jeter wants to do a lot of things post-career but being in a dugout every night is not one of them.

"I will not manage," Jeter said.

The subject came up at U.S. Cellular Field, because Robin Ventura, Jeter's former teammate, is in the home dugout managing. Jeter thinks he, like Ventura, might have the even-keeled demeanor for the job, but Jeter just doesn't want to do it.

"My temperament would be all right to manage," Jeter said. "But I'm not. No. Write that down."

Jeter is DHing on Thursday night.

Notes: Girardi stacked his lineup with righties, because Chris Sale has not given up a hit to a lefty in 20 at-bats this season. That is why Ichiro Suzuki and Brett Gardner aren't starting. Brian McCann is also receiving the day off. ... Michael Pineda (upper back) will throw to batters on Saturday. He could return at some point next month. ... Alex Rodriguez returned from hip surgery and was suspended last year here at U.S. Cellular Field. Does Girardi still keep in touch with Rodriguez? Girardi said, "I'm not going to say." ... Girardi said he spends one hour before each series figuring out his bullpen matchups.
