Update (11:17pm): Tex said he injured the hand yesterday on a dive and tried to play through it today, but it was too sore. Joe Girardi gave it the old day-to-day and said Nick Swisher will sub at first for the time being.
8:44pm: It’s a bruised right thumb for Tex, though we don’t know when or how it happened. Hopefully it’s just a bruise and nothing more serious.
7:50pm: Mark Teixeira was pinch hit for in the 3rd inning of today’s game for an unknown reason. There wasn’t any kind of obvious play where he may have injured himself, so we’re just going to have wait and see on this one. Fingers crossed.
