MRI reveals irritation of Teixeira’s left calf strainBy
Mark Teixeira will be sidelined an additional 10-14 days after an MRI revealed “irritation” of his left calf strain, the team announced. That means he’ll miss this weekend’s series against the Rays, but will be back with about a week to spare in the regular season. Since this was essentially a setback, I would expect them to be even more conservative next time around. Obviously this is very bad news that feels worse because of Jerry Meals’ blown call on the play Teixeira re-injured himself.
