Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says he’s leaning toward putting Teixeira on the DL. Cashman spoke on a conference call on Monday, an off-day for New York before it hosts the Los Angeles Dodgers in a two-game series.
“That’s a good thing,” Joe Girardi said before the team’s 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels. “If he was to re-tear it, that would probably be it for the season.”
The former Yankees star will be back Tuesday night when Los Angeles opens a two-game interleague series at New York.
There’s an advantage to all this. More beach time for the fans, who will be unencumbered by such mundane things as division and wild card races.
Clearly, Mark Teixeira played too soon when he returned from the DL in late May. Why should the Yankees make the same mistake now?
Positive news for the Yankees — an MRI only revealed inflammation in Mark Teixeira’s right wrist.
The role of the sheath is to stabilize the tendon within, enabling it to function more effectively, and minimize the likelihood it would sustain degenerative wear and tear and any resultant inflammation.
From the moment that spring training opened until today, the Mets were pegged to be bad and the Yankees looked like a team that would struggle to reach October. Three months later, that’s exactly who they are.
The Yankees said Thursday that Derek Jeter was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., and that he is continuing to heal.
There’s trouble brewing with those two, and manager Joe Girardi may be powerless to do much about it.
Yankees closer Mariano Rivera got a surfboard and a bottle of Napa Valley white wine as retirement gifts from the Oakland Athletics.
As soon as Coco Crisp sent the second pitch of the game from CC Sabathia over the left-field wall it was clear the Yankees’ ace didn’t have his best stuff.
Kevin Youkilis was kept out of the Yankees lineup Sunday with lower back stiffness, but says it’s “nothing like” the injury that put him on the disabled list in April.
Joe Girardi says the Yankees will “cross that bridge” later if baseball suspends Alex Rodriguez for his reported link to Biogenesis.
A league executive told CBS News that Anthony Bosch could implicate up to 25 players, including some stars not currently connected to the firestorm.
