New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) may require a DL stint, according to general manager Brian Cashman.
Fantasy Tip: Tex's up-and-down season seems to have hit another valley. Brian McCann may line up at first base for the duration, especially with INF/OF Kelly Johnson (groin) on the disabled list. It'd be good for McCann's value to play more frequently and not behind the plate.

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is adjusting to playing first base. He's lined up there the last two games as Mark Teixeira (lat) remains sidelined. McCann said he has enjoyed the physical break from catching.
Fantasy Tip: He's heating up at the plate, too, so the break from crouching and his ability to stay in the lineup make for a fine combo of positive fantasy developments.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) is sitting out Wednesday, July 2, after having fluid drained from his left knee. Manager Joe Girardi said Teixeira's knee has been bothering him "for a few days," but the team expects him to be fine for Thursday, July 3. General manager Brian Cashman said he doesn't think the injury is very serious, either.
Fantasy Tip: Teixeira has dealt with a myriad of different injuries over the years, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. While it's not deemed serious now, if he doesn't manage it properly, it could easily lead to an extended absence. As long as he's in the lineup, he should be in yours.
