Mark Teixeira expects to be back before June 1

We’ve been hearing early June for Mark Teixeira’s return for some time. Today Teixeira said maybe it’ll be a bit earlier than that:

I never thought I’d root for the Yankees, but they need to keep winning once Teixeira, Jeter, A-Rod and everyone comes back or else we’re going to have months of hearing stuff about how the stars killed the awesome team chemistry they developed early in the season. And I really don’t think I can handle that.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
