Teixeira leaves game with sore shoulder


Update (9:37pm): Tex woke up with a sore shoulder after diving for a ball last night, and it started to bother him after he dove for another ball tonight. He’s just sore, there are no tests scheduled. Phew.

Original Post (9:07pm): Eric Chavez pinch hit for Mark Teixeira in the bottom of the eighth inning tonight, though it’s unclear why the Yankees’ starting first baseman left the game. There was no obviously play where he might have injured himself, though he did get pulled off the bag by an errand throw in the previous half inning. That’s the only thing I can think of. We’ll update this post once we learn more.

    Right shoulder injured from dive. Please be minor and day to day, things have started so nicely.

    He dived after the Dunn single through the shift tonight. But let’s blame Jeter anyway.

    It was all Javy’s fault… and Farnsworth. I don’t know how or why but I’m going to prove it no matter what the cost
