Mark Teixeira gave the Yankees Universe a small scare on Saturday night when he was lifted suddenly from the Yanks’ game against the White Sox.
The Yankees later revealed that he suffered a bone bruise in his right thumb when he attempted to snag a ball in foul territory Friday and hit the ground hard. Teixeira made it through batting practice without too much discomfort on Saturday afternoon, but he didn’t feel good in his one at-bat and was replaced in the lineup by Curtis Granderson by the third inning.
Chad Jennings of the Journal News reports that Teixeira is being called day-to-day and should be available, if not starting, during Sunday’s series finale against Chicago. So all is well.
The big man is batting .257/.363/.492 on the season with 28 homers and 91 RBI in 486 at-bats.
