Yankees | Mark Teixeira still experiencing pain

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) still feels discomfort in his right wrist, according to general manager Brian Cashman, despite receiving a cortisone injection on June 16 intended to alleviate the pain of the partially torn tendon sheath in the joint. The news suggests season-ending surgery is becoming a likelier option. Teixeira said he has done no activity since the shot.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound good. Those in shallow mixed leagues shouldn't feel compelled to hold him. Others can wait around, if they desire or have the luxury because of their league's rules. Lyle Overbay is looking like a long-term investment for the Yanks and fantasy owners in deep leagues.
