According to beat writer Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Yankees first baseman underwent an MRI on Sunday morning back in New York City that showed no new structural damage in the wrist. Teixeira only has mild inflammation, which was treated immediately with a cortisone shot.
The Yankees will head home from Anaheim this evening and are set to open a two-game interleague series against the Dodgers on Tuesday night after Monday’s team off day. Teixeira is highly likely to miss that series with L.A. but the hope is that he won’t require a stint on the 15-day disabled list.
The 33-year-old is batting .151/.270/.340 since his return to the Yankees on May 31.
