Via Marc Carig, Mark Teixeira received a cortisone shot in his left wrist following yesterday’s home opener. Tex has been bothered by a sore wrist for about a week, and said he hopes this puts him “over the top.” Tex shook his hand after fouling off several pitches yesterday, and was removed from the game once the Indians blew it open. The important thing is that the MRI revealed no structural damage, just inflammation. The cortisone will take a day or two to kick in, and should last for several weeks. Tex said he expects to play on Friday.
