Teixeira received cortisone shot last month


Via Marc Carig, Mark Teixeira received a cortisone shot in his injury thumb at some point last month. Tex bruised the thumb on a diving play against the White Sox in late August, though the soreness lingered and it affected him at the plate for much of September. We don’t when exactly he received the shot, but he really started crushing the ball around the 21st or 22nd of last month, so a day or two before that is a good bet. Tex hit .293/.388/.585 with three homers in the last two weeks of the season, so it would be nice if he maintained that pace this month.

    I’m ready for Tex to take the playoffs by storm this year. He was pretty dreadful last year (except for a few notable ABs).

    I remember I was on vacation when Tex left that game in August. I call that day “Panic in Wine Country.”

    Tex also had/has a broken toe. That may have had something to do with his slump.
