|Mark Teixeira targeting June 1 return|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said Tuesday his rehab is going "great" and he expects to be in the majors by June 1, MLB.com reports.
Teixeira isn't eligible to return to the Yankees' roster until May 30 as he was shifted to the 60-day disabled list earlier in the month. He took batting practice for the first time last week. Expect him to head out on a rehab assignment at some point in the next couple of weeks if he is to actually reach his goal of being ready by June 1.

(5/10/13) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who has been working out at the team's complex in Tampa, Fla., will take batting practice for the first time Sunday.
Teixeira, who had missed the start of the season with a strained wrist, could rejoin the team by the end of May.
|Mark Teixeira not inspiring much confidence|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/7/13) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he could return to the lineup within 1-3 weeks, but he also says he could need as many as 150 at-bats to find his stroke. And of course, the possibility of him completely tearing the tendon sheath in his wrist and needing season-ending surgery remains.
Put it all together, and I'm not all that jazzed about owning him in Fantasy. He's a notoriously slow starter, so I buy that he might not do much for his first 100 at-bats or so, and his production has been declining over the last few years anyway. From the time he returns until the end of the season, I doubt he'll be one of the best 16 first basemen in Fantasy.
I'm not saying I absolutely wouldn't stash him, but on my list of the 25 DL players most worth stashing in Fantasy, he doesn't rank especially high.

(5/7/13) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira took grounders Tuesday and said he would hit on the field Friday for the first time since suffering a wrist injury, the New York Post reports. Teixeira, who is currently rehabbing at the team's spring training site, has not played all season and is hoping to return to the lineup by the end of May.
|Mark Teixeira had a 2012 he'd like to forget. He spent the first month of the year battling a respiratory illness and the last month mostly sidelined with an injured calf. The middle was good, but not great. Teixeira's .807 OPS was the lowest of his career. His .251 average was boosted by a seven-game stretch at the end of May where he hit .407 with three home runs, although Teixeira did have a nice July, in which he managed a .298 average with seven home runs, 27 RBI and a 1.017 OPS. Overall, though, he was a huge Fantasy disappointment, despite finishing as a top-five first baseman in points leagues. His scoring was erratic, his streak of 30 home runs was snapped at eight seasons and his string of 20-point weeks (in Weeks 15-17) got owners excited just in time for him to sputter with an injury and another drop in production. His average, which was .290 over his first seven seasons, continued to wallow well below that, at .251 -- his third straight season of an average below .257. Perhaps the fresh start to 2013, with no illness or injury at the beginning, will get Teixeira on the right track. The power is still there, but don't expect a huge rebound in average, even though his early career numbers would suggest the possibility is there. Teixeira's history should have him drafted in the early rounds. (Updated 12/5/12)|
