Mark Teixeira sees first game action in extended spring

11 Comments

Mark Teixeira initially said he’d be back by May 1 and then adjusted that to June 1 and now … who knows. But the Yankees first baseman did take a big step in his recovery from a wrist injury by playing in his first extended spring training game today.

Stats for those games aren’t really official or anything, but according to Teixeira he went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.

June 1 seems awfully optimistic, like most of Teixeira’s updates throughout this whole thing, but some time in early June could be doable if he avoids setbacks.
