Update: Teixeira leaves game with wrist injury, x-rays negative

By

10:47pm: Via Marc Carig, x-rays came back negative, so that’s good. Still not out of the woods yet.

10:20pm: Teixeira has a left wrist injury and is headed for various tests tomorrow. Apparently he first hurt himself last night and aggravated it further tonight. “It’s a big concern,” said Joe Girardi. “We’ll keep our fingers crossed.” No good, very bad news.

9:32pm: Mark Teixeira left tonight’s game with an apparent left arm/hand injury. He dove for a ball in the seventh inning and was seen shaking his hand afterward. He remained in the game to complete the inning but was then lifted. Obviously this is not good. Stayed tuned for updates.

    Just what we needed….fingers crossed

  • Knoxvillain

    JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! This months sucks ass. Kill me now.

  • DERP

    Brian S. approves.

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Now Cahsman needs to get a bat. And by bat I don’t mean random scrub A-Z.

  • Knoxvillain

    This is perfect for how I feel right now.

  • Troy

    The effect of no Arod has reared it’s ugly face. The middle of the lineup has gone silent. Better get moving Cashman.

  • Nice Scheister

    Hello Jack Cust!

    • j

      I’d rather roll with Branyan

      • Nice Scheister

        Me too, is he alive or back on the highly classified MiL DL?!

  • Cbean

    /doooooooomed

  • Brian S.

    Left wrist injury. They are sending him for tests tomorrow.

  • Rey22

    Russel Branyan, the Bronx is calling.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting

      thought he was hurt again

    • DM

      He’s been out since early July.

  • Jeff Karstens, Male Model

    Team is starting to look really weak.

  • CUYanks

    If there is something really bad, and there is a thought by Cashman to make a trade, it probably would behoove the Yankees not to announce the extent of the injury in order to maintain some leverage in trade negotiations.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      While true in a sense, the non-waiver trade deadline is in less than 18 hours. So the leverage wouldn’t be on our side anyways if we “need” to make a deal.

      • CUYanks

        Yeah, but if another team “knows” we need to deal, they can overcharge us.

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Swisher to 1B, Ichiro stays in RF

  • DM

    You could move Swisher to 1st. Keep Ichiro in RF.

  • Get Phelps Up

    I see that Reed Johnson was just traded. God I hope it’s to the Yankees.

    • CUYanks

      Soto too.

      • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

        MLB Reports on Twitter says “enjoy NY.”

        However MLB Network “suspects” it is the Mets via a short off-air phone call with Rosenthal

        • Get Phelps Up

          Soto or Johnson?

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            Soto.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          mlbtr says it’s not the Mets…and there is only other one other team in NY…Soto has been terrible with the bat, and is no more than average with the glove. That’s perfect for what Joe looks for in a catcher.

          • CUYanks

            Rangers Soto.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    so our line up for the foreseeable is:
    SS Jeter
    CF Granderson(for some reason Joe won’t move him from two, like ever)
    LF Swisher
    2B Cano
    DH Ibanez/Jones
    1B Chavez
    C Martin
    RF Suzuki
    3B Nix

    Fuck…get Chase Headley here stat!!!

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      my bad, Suzuki should be in left, Swish in Right.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      Swisher won’t be in LF. In fact, he may be at 1B.

      Girardi did that earlier this year during Teix’s sickness. Chavy said he’s not comfortable at 1B.

      • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

        They will still do Chavez/ Nix split at 3B. They won’t have chavy play every day no matter what.

        • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

          Then that means that Jones and Ibanez have to be in the line up, and one of them in the field everyday. Even against same side pitchers. Still think that means a move needs to be made.

          • DM

            You could bring up Ronnier and give him a shot in some LF/DH rotation with Jones and Ibanez.

          • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

            Yes to 1.) and I agree to 2.)

            But if they don’t make a trade, that’s what you’re looking at.

    • DM

      I think they’d move Swisher to 1st, keep Ichiro in RF. And keep the 3rd base platoon intact. You still can’t play Chavez every day.

      • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

        It’s weird that my initials are also DM ironically

        • DM

          And my club persona is “Cuso” — bizarre.

          • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

            YOU’RE THE SAME PERSON!!!!!!!

            • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

              Haha. No.

              I am Pillowpants.

              • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

                So then DM is Listerfiend?

                • DM

                  I’m not that kind of troll.

            • DM

              Despite what Ted always suspects, there’s only one of me. Be thankful.

          • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

            My last name is Mancuso, nickname “Cuso” that’s where my handle comes from

    • Timothy

      If Tex is DL bound, Girardi will have no choice but to bat Granderson 3rd…. Most likely:

      RF Ichiro
      SS Jeter
      CF Granderson
      2B Cano
      1B Swisher (assuming they seriously consider him a everyday option which i find doubtful)
      LF Ibanez
      DH Jones (who would of thought both Jones and Ibanez would become every day players and we would be up 7 games)
      3B Chavez
      C Martin

      Bottom line, this team is now instantly weak and mostly Left handed! A move has to be made and bringing up another lefty like Cust, Branyan or even though I mentioned it too acquiring Overbay wont help much….

  • Troy

    We need a bat, and a quality starter wouldn’t hurt. Let’s bring back soriano and get dempster too!

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    I really hope the team doesn’t listen to Curry and bring up Laird…

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Also…dude the fucking trade deadline is tomorrow. Hospitals are opened 24/7. Go get those tests done right now. Find out exactly what is wrong with him, right now. So you know if you should be looking for some major upgrade tomorrow.

  • Thaaaaaaaayankeeswin

    This team will be out of first by the 3rd week of August. But Cashman can remain stubborn as his team continues to fail in key situations and the injuries mount. Lead off double, tying run in bottom of ninth and they can’t get the runner in. Night after night it’s another fail. This is regular season, in the playoffs elite staffs won’t give up late homers and big comebacks. Yanks will again be one and done…but hey Cashman, glad your done with the trade deadline.

    • Bunt Gardner

      Wow.

    • Timothy

      It truly is amazing. If yankees hit just .250 with RISP they would be up 15+ games by now (!)

  • JobaWockeeZ

    Tests are negative. Get a bat anyways.

  • RI$P FTW

    Two words: Posada

    • DM

      Nice

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Soto to Rangers

    Shit

    • CUYanks

      Not a game changer, but I guess some insurance against Napoli leaving after this year?

    • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

      Meh, he’s been good, then bad, then good, then worse, and now terrible from year to year in the NL Central.

      • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

        Yeah. My “shit” comment was an overstatement in retrospect.

    • Get Phelps Up

      He’s not much of an upgrade if any over Martin. I suppose he’s better than Stewart, but as I’ve said before, I’d be more interested in a defensive stud a la Jose Molina as a backup.

  • tyrone sharpton

    ok now NYY are fucked

  • Guest

    reed johnson to braves

  • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

    Maholm/Johnson to Braves

  • blake

    go get Choo…move Swisher to 1B for now until Tex gets back. They needed a bat anyway….

    • Timothy

      Your not the only one suggesting this, but I highly doubt Swisher is a everyday option at 1B…

  • http://yankeesblogtbnl.blogspot.com/ CMITCH

    Lyle Overbay anyone?

  • Get Phelps Up

    Yorvit Torrealba DFA’d. Can he really do worse than Chris Stewart? It would be nice to pick him up.

    • Timothy

      Stewart hasnt been bad, and is very valuable defensively.

  • Boys of Summer

    Wondering why fans are not outraged by cashman’s complacency? This team needs help now before they fall out of first. Cashman needs to get help for his slumping and injured team!

  • Timothy

    Lyle Overbay just DFA by Diamondbacks…he’s hitting .292 in 110 PA. However he is strictly vs. RHP only ( 95 ab vs RHP, 15 AB vs. LHP_ A possible short term fix? I’m not familiar with his defensive skills however..
