Cashman: Mark Teixeira is 'definitely an everyday first baseman'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman appears confident first baseman Mark Teixeira won't be as injury prone in 2015, per NJ.com.
Teixeira payed in just 123 games in 2014 due to a myriad of injuries, which included problems with his surgically repaired wrist, strained hamstring, sore knee, tired legs, dizziness, lacerated left hand and strained oblique.
"I don’t think we’ll have the same issues this year as we had last year," Cashman said. "I think Mark Teixeira is definitely an everyday first baseman. I think he’ll prove that this year. I think last year is something he felt will be part of the process and he feels it won’t be part of this year’s process. In terms of his recovery and rehab, last year was expected for him. And that won’t be expected going forward."
Yankees veteran Mark Teixeira seeking strength in offseason
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/22/14) Yankees aging first baseman Mark Teixeira has lamented what he called a "bad season" and plans on improving his upper-body strength before next year.
Teixeira batted a career-low .216 (aside from 2013, when he had just 53 at-bats), though he did rack up 23 home runs and 62 RBI in 440 at-bats. He told ESPN that he was negatively affected coming off a right wrist injury. But he added that he needs to get stronger if he wants to rebound.
"I didn't realize how weak I was upper-body," he said. "I'm trying to be working a lot harder. That will be my adjustment this year."
Teixeira will turn 35 years old on April 15.
Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira feels he can still play 150 games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/7/14) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira hasn't played 150-plus games since the 2011 season and hasn't surpassed 123 games over the last three seasons, which has a lot to do with his surgically repaired right wrist.
However, the 34-year-old first baseman still feels he is capable of playing in 150 games as he enters his 13th MLB season in 2015.
"You’d have to be crazy to think we wouldn’t be a little bit better if I was healthier," Teixeira said Monday, per the New York Daily News. "I played 123 games? I want to play 150 and I want to be healthy and strong for 150. So that’s what I expect out of myself."
Mark Teixeira able to return
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/23/14) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was in the starting lineup for the first time in three games Tuesday against Baltimore. He had been sitting with a sore wrist.
Teixeira, who received a third cortisone shot in the wrist Sunday, hasn't fared well with the injury, batting just .177 (29 for 164) since the All-Star break.
Mark Teixeira to see hand surgeon
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/21/14) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, held out of Sunday's lineup with a sore right wrist, is headed to see a hand surgeon, reports MLB.com. Teixeira, who's hitting .216 with 21 homers and 58 RBI, might not play again this season.
|2014 summary: The oft-injured Mark Teixeira served only one stint on the disabled list -- an April stay for a strained hamstring -- but he appeared in only 123 games as he dealt with a series of nagging ailments. Despite the limited playing time, Teixeira provided some power for the Yankees with 22 home runs, but he didn't offer Fantasy owners much else. Teixeira's .216 batting average didn't afford him many opportunities to drive in runs, and he finished with 62 RBI. Strikeout and ground ball rates well above his norms contributed to a paltry total of 14 doubles. All of that helped to relegate Teixeira to a No. 25 ranking among first basemen in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Teixeira has not played in as many as 125 games since 2011, and given how many times he sat out due to injury last season, he should be considered a long shot to remain in the lineup on a regular basis.
2015 outlook: If Teixeira could be counted on to play 150 games or more, he would be worth a late-round pick in standard mixed leagues, but he is simply too much of a playing time risk. Save him for your mixed leagues of 14 teams or more.
