Teixeira not in lineup today, expects to play tomorrow

By

Mark Teixeira (calf) once again ran sprints and the bases this afternoon, but the Yankees are going to hold him out of the lineup at least one more day. “They don’t want me to play today,” he said to Bryan Hoch, and it seems like the club is giving him the proverbial “one extra day” before sticking him back in the lineup. The Yankees miss their first baseman most against left-handed pitching, and tonight will be Teixeira’s tenth consecutive game out of the lineup.

    Man. The 2nd half of the season sucks ass this year. I expected the complete opposite. Hopefully he comes back soon and healthy. They need all the help they can get right now, and it doesn’t look good at all.

    What do they know? They’re the ones that have gotten us into this mess! If Teix wants to play let him play. 1st place is on the line and they’re babying Teixera like he’s Steven Strasburg. LET HIM PLAY

    Asked this question in the previous thread by why is A-Rod DHing for the second day in a row when Jeter (ankle), Cano (hip), and Granderson (hamstring) could use a half day?

    Tex? For his D maybe. Otherwise, he’s all glove, no bat .255/.335
    It’s enough to see Swisher flailing at off speed pitches in the dirt. Swish doesn’t need an accomplice.
