Update: Mark Teixeira leaves game with “aggravated right wrist”


9:26pm: Teixeira has an “aggravated right wrist,” the Yankees announced. He will return to New York to get checked out by the team doctor tomorrow. Probably not a good sign that they aren’t even waiting until the off-day on Monday.

8:32pm: Mark Teixeira left tonight’s game with an apparent right wrist problem after the third inning. Joe Girardi said he “just doesn’t feel like he has the snap in his swing” during the FOX interview while also indicating the first baseman will get the next few days off. Teixeira missed close to three months with a tendon sheath injury earlier this year, and the Yankees indicated there was only a 70% chance he would not require season-ending surgery.

    Just not our year I suppose.

  2. forensic says:

    Meredith Marakovits told Suzyn Waldman that Tex said he “didn’t have any strength in his wrist”, for what it’s worth.

    Is this real life?

    Everyone get ready to start sacrificing your goats and chickens!!

  6. Eddard says:

    Girardi never gave the guy a day off just coming off major injury. Instead, he gives Hafner the day off and now he can’t even put Lyle at 1st.

      I could be wrong, but if the wrist was going to go, it was going to go. A day off might’ve helped, I suppose.

    I’m afraid to say, in the immortal words of that famous asshole Hawk Harrelson….. He Gone!

    I’d be very surprised if we get anything from Teix this year.

  8. Paul says:

    Unreal g’night DL time…time to see what aaa and aa have….well done Hal!

    • The Real Me says:

      Yup, all Hal’s fault that Jeter couldn’t return by the beginning of the season, Granderson got hit by pitches twice that broke bones, Cervelli broke his hand, Teixiera hurt his wrist and Nunez hurt his torso.

      You can blame the brass for not getting a better replacement for A-Rod, but not the other stuff.

  9. PFOJ says:

    I feel like the 2013 Yankees were designed by a deity to make me miserable.

    Oh, the humanity!

  11. Duh fuheva deal with it says:

    Call up Corbin Joseph and play him at 1B every day.

    I wanna see what he and Adams can do.

    Cervelli/Jesus Montero/Cano/Adams/Nunez/Melky Cabrera/Gardner/Montero/Jeter starting nine and Romine/Joseph/Mustelier/Almonte bench for 2014.

    All bench players get significant playing time especially Joseph and Mustelier.

    Cano is the only expensive player and player signed to a guaranteed contract beyond 2014, Jeter is the only old player.

  12. Duh fuheva deal with it says:

    I meant Almonte in RF, Mesa #4 OF. Edit button please!

  13. James Loney says:

    Ruben Amaro Jr. is on the phone hoping Cashman is drinking heavily tonight.

  14. Nathan says:

    Start sucking for a high draft pick next year a la Red Sox last year?

  15. forensic says:

    He’s just trying to delay his BA dropping under .150.

  16. Bye, bye, Tex…

    So all we need at the trade deadline is both corner infield spots, at least 1 corner OF and a real backup catcher.


    Figure Joba, Hughes and Boone are valuable pieces, haha.

  17. LarryM Fl says:

    Go have the surgery!. This season is turning quite fast. Youkilis may be done for the year. So find out what you have down on the farm. I know its early but the handwriting is on the wall.

    Just one of those years!

    Somewhere in Queens, stuart a is doing backflips.

  19. dan genovese says:

    they stuck….and 189,,,,next year

  20. will says:

    I’m fine for playing for a top 5 pick and trading away people for prospects this july. Or w/e the deadline is. Towels already being tossed

  21. Stratman9652 says:

    This might be the least shocking injury ever. Did anyone actually expect him to come back and not re-injure it? Was a handful of games worth risking him doing even more serious damage? Of course we don’t know if he managed to fully tear the tendon and I’m no doctor, but I have to imagine a partial tear is easier to fix and more likely to recover fully than a full tear. It just seemed like too risky of a gamble especially for a power hitter who isn’t hitting for a high enough average anymore to sustain a loss of power.

    How is this real anymore?
