That’s the good news. The bad news is that even before injuring his hamstring Teixeira talked about how his surgically repaired wrist may simply never be at full strength, so healthy hamstring or not he remains a big question mark for the Yankees.
Teixeira has been out since injuring his hamstring chasing after a foul ball on April 4. He turned 34 years old while on the disabled list and hasn’t topped an .850 OPS since 2009, which was his first year in New York. Of course, at this point the Yankees would gladly take, say, a .785 OPS from Teixeira.
