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


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

  2. Knoxvillain says:

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

  3. DERP says:

    Brian S. approves.

  4. JobaWockeeZ says:

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

  5. Knoxvillain says:

    This is perfect for how I feel right now.


  6. Troy says:

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

  7. Nice Scheister says:

    Hello Jack Cust!

  8. Cbean says:


  9. Brian S. says:

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

  10. Rey22 says:

    Russel Branyan, the Bronx is calling.

  11. Jeff Karstens, Male Model says:

    Team is starting to look really weak.

  12. CUYanks says:

    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.

    • Cuso says:

      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.

  13. Cuso says:

    Swisher to 1B, Ichiro stays in RF

  14. DM says:

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

  15. Get Phelps Up says:

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

  16. 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!!!

  17. Troy says:

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

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

  19. Thaaaaaaaayankeeswin says:

    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.

  20. JobaWockeeZ says:

    Tests are negative. Get a bat anyways.

  21. RI$P FTW says:

    Two words: Posada

  22. Cuso says:

    Soto to Rangers


  23. tyrone sharpton says:

    ok now NYY are fucked

  24. Guest says:

    reed johnson to braves

  25. Cuso says:

    Maholm/Johnson to Braves

  26. blake says:

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

  27. CMITCH says:

    Lyle Overbay anyone?

  28. Get Phelps Up says:

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

  29. Boys of Summer says:

    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!

  30. Timothy says:

    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..
