TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A true sight for sore eyes.
But it wasn’t exactly a great show.
Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis were hitless Wednesday in their first minor-league rehab game, working their way back from injuries for a return to the New York Yankees.
General manager Brian Cashman said they’ll rejoin the Yankees on Friday against the Boston Red Sox unless there’s an unexpected setback. Both will play another game with the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Thursday night.
In seven innings, each went 0-for-2 with a walk in a 3-1 Trenton win against the Erie SeaWolves.
“We’re ready,” Teixiera said after the game. “I’ve been feeling good for weeks. I’m just feeling good about playing again.”
