Teixeira works out for first time since re-aggravating calf strain

By

Mark Teixeira worked out today for the first time since re-aggravating his left calf strain two weeks ago, taking ground balls and hitting in the cage. He also did some light jogging. “Everything felt fine,” he said afterwards. “I obviously wasn’t pushing it really out there. But it was a good workout.”

The hope is that Teixeira will be able to rejoin the team when they head to Toronto next week, but that’s hardly a lock. He hinted today that returning in time for a potential postseason series is not a guarantee since he still feels soreness and tightness in the calf, and that would be very bad. I hope that’s not the case. Tex is heading to Instructional League on Monday to continue to work out and play in some game situations.

    Season is almost over. It’s not like he needs it perfect, they play for another month at most and then he goes and rests it for 5 months.

      Sounds like he’s nowhere near perfect. I’m pretty sure if he’s healthy enough, he’ll play. Playing on an injury could cause Tex to re-aggravate the injury. Definitely don’t want to rush him.
