Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to DL

The New York Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 18, and recalled P Adam Warren and OF Zoilo Almonte from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, RP Chris Bootcheck was designated for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: GM Brian Cashman hinted yesterday that this would happen. The good news is that there's no structural damage in Teixeira's right wrist. However, there's still the possibility that he'll need season-ending surgery. Monitor his progress and hold onto him for now. Lyle Overbay should see the majority of starts at first base again in Tex's absence, making him relevant in AL-only leagues once again.
