Yankees | Mark Teixeira, Kevin Youkilis ready to return

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) and 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) both appear healthy and ready to return from the disabled list Friday, May 31. Both players will first rehab with Double-A Trenton for two games this week before rejoining the Yankees, though. Teixeira went hitless with a walk Wednesday and Youkilis went hitless with a walk, as well. Teixeira has been pain-free in his rehab but admitted that he's further along from the right side of the plate than the left.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Tex and Youk will push Lyle Overbay and David Adams out of regular work and possibly roster spots. Jayson Nix will continue to see time at shortstop until Eduardo Nunez (oblique) returns. Expect Joe Girardi to look to rest Teixeira and Youkilis frequently initially, but both should be put in your lineup on a daily basis.
