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.
“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 media references to Teixeira’s injury noted the involved area to be his wrist -– a joint, while also pointing to a diagnosis of strain. This doesn’t totally compute.
Nets guard Deron Williams underwent successful wrist surgery today in New York. Williams’ wrist will be encased in a soft splint for two weeks, after which time he will begin rehabilitation.
