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.

      Are you serious regarding Nick Johnson? Isn’t Johnson more fragile than anyone on the Yankee roster?

        pc…Nick Johnson is out of baseball, that was a sarcastic comparison. If Nick Johnson would fart and go on the DL

        Good one.

    Last night Teixeira did not swing the bat until the 6th inning. He swung at a grand total of 3 of the 23 pitches he saw.

    Sounds like the wrist was already a problem. A pretty impressive line, considering the circumstances.

    Nick Johnson has the distinction of being the most talented injury prone MLBer in my lifetime (I’m nearly 50)

    Sounds like his career is about over. I wonder how long he’ll stick around collection paychecks.
