Sunday: Via Bryan Hoch, Teixeira will go for an MRI on the calf and is unlikely to be available during the upcoming series against the Red Sox. Fantastic.
Saturday: Following tonight’s game, Mark Teixeira told reporters that he felt something in his left calf running out the final play of the game, and that’s why he slid into first. A Grade I strain in the same calf kept him on the shelf for the previous ten games. Teixeira will not play on Sunday and the Yankees are off on Monday, so he’ll get at least two days off to hopefully straighten this out. Le sigh.
