Yankees | Mark Teixeira won't be platoon player

Both New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) and general manager Brian Cashman said that Teixeira won't return for the rest of the season as a platoon player against left-handers. Teixeira has little pain in his right wrist when he swings from the right side of the plate.

Fantasy Tip: This news makes it more acceptable to dump Teixeira in a shallow league if you have pressing needs. Continue to monitor his progress in deep mixed formats.
