Mark Teixeira to miss at least the first week of spring games

George A. King III of the New York Post reports that Mark Teixeira (wrist) isn’t likely to play in Grapefruit League games until March 3, at the earliest.

His wrist is still tight, though there is no pain and he hasn’t had any setbacks. He said earlier this month that it could be June before he loses that tightness. I think one of the bigger questions for the Yankees is what they’ll get, if anything, from Teixeira this year. If he’s not productive they’re going to be relying pretty heavily on a small number of guys.
