New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) and SS Brendan Ryan (back) are not close to returning to the team. Manager Joe Girardi said Ryan "may have started some light baseball activity today." Teixeira has been limited to stretching and riding an exercise bike.
Fantasy Tip: It's not a surprise that neither player will come off the 15-day DL when they're eligible. Tex is notorious as a slow healer and Ryan is dealing with a potential serious injury.

The New York Yankees placed 2B Brendan Ryan (spine) on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical spine nerve problem Tuesday, April 1, and recalled INF Yangervis Solarte from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte will effectively replace Ryan as the club's utility infielder. Don't expect a quick return from Ryan because of the nature of his ailment.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said 2B Brian Roberts will start for the team at second base this season. "That is the plan, for him to be our second baseman," Girardi said. "I know he hasn't played a full season in the last few years, he's obviously a guy who has some age on him too, but my plan is to run him out there every day." 3B Kelly Johnson is slated to at least platoon at third base. 2B Brendan Ryan is also a candidate to see time at the keystone.

The New York Yankees are highly unlikely to bid on free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), according to major league officials in contact with Yankees officials. The team may need a contingency plan to SS Derek Jeter as he comes back from a serious injury and to replace 2B Robinson Cano and 3B Alex Rodriguez. General manager Brian Cashman seems content on starting the year with INFs Brian Roberts, Kelly Johnson, Eduardo Nunez and Brendan Ryan providing infield depth. The Yankees are not expected to stretch their budget much further after going past their self-imposed $189 million payroll limit.
