Mark Teixeira‘s season is over after just 15 unproductive games thanks to a wrist injury suffered during the World Baseball Classic and Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York has the details on how much of that will be covered by insurance.
Between the WBC-based insurance from MLB and their own insurance the Yankees will reportedly get back $18.7 million of his $22.5 million salary for this season. According to Marchand the WBC-based portion of that is $7 million.
All of which seems to suggest that the Yankees would have plenty of money to throw around for a midseason pickup, particularly if it were someone on a one-year deal.
Teixeira, who’s 33 years old and hasn’t topped an .850 OPS since 2009, is signed for three more seasons after this one at $22.5 million per year.
