Yankees First Baseman Teixeira Leaves Game In Fourth Inning, Aggravates Wrist
ANAHEIM, Calif. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has left New York’s game against the Los Angeles Angels in the fourth inning.
Teixeira flied out to right and fouled out to third before leaving Saturday’s game. The Yankees didn’t immediately announce the reason for his departure, though it was later revealed Teixeira aggravated his right wrist.
Manager Joe Girardi said Teixeira “doesn’t feel like he has the snap in his swing” when interviewed on FOX.
David Adams replaced Teixeira at first base.
Teixeira is hitless in his last 12 at-bats. He is just 8 for 53 since coming off the disabled list May 31, including a 4-for-35 slump on the Yankees’ current road trip.
