Teixeira out for the season; Nuñez to be activatedBy
12:45am: It’s a Grade II strain, worse than when Phil Hughes popped his hammy back in 2007. He’ll need 6-8 weeks to recover, but that doesn’t really matter. He’ll be ready to go for Spring Training, which is what’s important.
12:23am: As the Yanks’ season rests in the hands of their ace CC Sabathia, the team will be without Mark Teixeira for the remainder of the postseason. Following a disastrous hamstring pull in the pivotal fifth inning of Game 4 of the ALCS, the Yankees will remove Teixeira from the roster tomorrow and activate Eduardo Nuñez, Bryan Hoch reported after the game. With this move, Teixeira is done for the season as per MLB rules, he will be ineligible to play in the World Series. What a way for his season to end.
