Mark Teixeira exits game with right wrist soreness

8 Comments

Bad news for the Yankees, as Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News reports that Mark Teixeira left today’s game against the Twins due to renewed soreness in his surgically-repaired right wrist.

Teixeira missed three games earlier this week due to inflammation in the wrist, but he returned to the lineup last night and went 0-for-1 with three walks. He made it through two at-bats today before exiting.

With Teixeira’s wrist a lingering question mark, it will be interesting to see if the Yankees consider making a serious run at free agent Kendrys Morales. He’ll no longer be attached to draft pick compensation after the First-Year Player Draft next Thursday.
