So, Mark Teixeira left in the middle of tonight’s game and the Yankees have announced he is on his way back to New York to be examined tomorrow. The Yankees were scheduled to fly back to New York tomorrow afternoon as a team, so I would say that sending Teixeira ahead like this is “concerning” at the very least. I would hazard to guess that we won’t be seeing Teixeira for quite awhile, possibly the rest of the year.
UPDATE 2:50PM 6/16 The Yankees have dodged a bullet as Mark Teixeira has only inflammation in his wrist and not a tear. Despite this close call, the Yankees are not putting Teixeira on the DL yet as they are going to wait and see what happens to his wrist before acting.
