Perhaps the artillery Girardi really needs, the big cannons, will come alive soon enough.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has had surgery to repair the tendon sheath in his right wrist.
it may be prudent to opt for surgery immediately after injury rather than take a wait-and-see-approach.
This is not how the Yankees were supposed to go to battle, using 41 players in the first 77 games.
So why were A-Rod’s rehab tweets a bigger deal than those of Mark Teixeira or Curtis Granderson? Listen to all the audio from a strange day in Yankee-land.
“Ninety-nine times out of 100, I roll with it pretty good,” Brian Cashman said. “I didn’t roll with this one well at all. I popped. I sounded off. Reality TV at its best.”
Recovery time is projected at six months. Teixeira said he’d likely have the surgery next week.
Brian Cashman says surgery remains an option for Mark Teixeira after a cortisone shot didn’t do much to help his aching right wrist.
The good news is that the Yankees are just 3 1/2 games out of first place. The troubling news is that they’re just four games out of last.
Kevin Youkilis needs back surgery and Mark Teixeira returned to the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with an aching right wrist, the latest injury setbacks for the depleted New York Yankees.
Brian Cashman insists he’s not angry with Kevin Long. But the Yankees GM didn’t too happy with him either when discussing Mark Teixeira’s wrist woes.
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.”
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?
