by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Despite returning to the starting lineup Thursday, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said his knee is still a little sore one day after getting it drained, the Star-Ledger reports.

Mark Teixeira looking forward to Thursday off day


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is looking forward to the team's off day Thursday, according to NJ.com.

When Teixeira initially returned from his wrist injury, he said he would occasionally need days off. That hasn't been the case, as Teixeira has rested just twice since early June. With the way the team is currently set up, it's tough to take Teixeira out of the lineup. The team doesn't have a true backup at the position, and Carlos Beltran is now limited to DH duties. Following Wednesday's game, Teixeira sat in the locker room with various ice packs on his body. He sarcastically told reporters he feels "great."

Over 199 at-bats, Teixeira is hitting .241/.352/.477.


Mark Teixeira slugs 14th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Teixeira knocked a two-run home run during a four-run third inning then provided an insurance run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. His homer was his third in the last five games. Teixeira has hit .241/.352/.477 with 14 home runs and 39 RBI in 199 at-bats.


Mark Teixeira smacks 13th home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 8-3 loss to the Blue Jays Monday.

Teixeira's fourth-inning home run was all the Yankees could muster through eight innings before tacking on a pair of ultimately meaningless runs in the ninth. His two homers in his last three games have been his only hits in 10 at-bats. Teixeira has hit .247/.363/.479 with 13 home runs and 36 RBI in 190 at-bats.

Mark Teixeira scratched Saturday with ribcage tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has been scratched from Saturday's lineup with tightness in his left ribcage, the team announced.

Teixeira missed some time earlier in June while dealing with a wrist injury, but he was able to record hits on each of the last four days before getting scratched Saturday. He has hit .241/.361/.463 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI in 162 at-bats.


Mark Teixeira has a blast Wednesday in Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira gave starter Masahiro Tanaka all the offensive help he needed Wednesday night in Seattle.

Teixeira turned a 1-0 lead into a 4-0 lead with a three-run homer in the fifth inning. It was his 11th of the season. He added a walk to raise his on-base percentage to a strong .364 on the year.


Don't give up on Mark Teixeira just yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Prior to his return to the lineup Tuesday, Mark Teixeira had missed back-to-back games and five of his last seven with inflammation in his wrist -- the same one that required surgery in 2013, costing him almost the entire season.

But after having a cortisone shot Saturday, he seemed to pick up where he left off Tuesday, going 2 for 5 with a home run in five at-bats.

Cortisone shots can have an amazing effect on athletes. They reduce inflammation, masking pain that might otherwise make them incapable of performing. The clearest example for me is Ryan Zimmerman in 2012. For the first two months, he hit .218 with three homers and a .590 OPS, clearly limited by a shoulder injury. But a cortisone shot on June 24 completely turned his season around. From that point forward, he hit .321 with 22 home runs and a .967 OPS in 90 games.

Granted, it's not meant to be a long-term solution, and Teixeira may pay the price for it later. But if it has the effect for him that it appeared to have Tuesday, you'll want to hold on to him. He was showing the power and plate discipline that made him a Fantasy mainstay for his first few years with the Yankees before the inflammation began.


Mark Teixeira homers in return to lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) After missing a couple days with a wrist injury, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira went 2 for 5 with a home run and two RBI in his team's 5-2 loss to the A's Tuesday.

Teixeira knocked an RBI single in the first inning to put his team up 1-0, then smashed his home run in the sixth to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead, but it would be the last run they scored in the loss. He has hit .248/.371/.496 with 10 home runs and 27 RBI in 133 at-bats.
