Yankees | Mark Teixeira out for Red Sox series

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:41:09 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) has returned to New York to undergo further tests and is not expected to play during the series against the Boston Red Sox, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will continue to see everyday at-bats for the duration of Teixeira's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) absence. Continue to be patient with Teixeira in seasonal formats, but it isn't out of the question to replace him if you need production in the now. Check back for updates.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:50:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is still dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has one hit and one RBI in his last four games and may not be the best option for owner on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira having difficulty running

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:51:24 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) said the deep bone bruise in his right leg is not improving and has made it difficult for him to run. "It's not as good as I would have hoped," he said. "Running is still a big struggle. I can't run. It's just as simple as that. It's very frustrating." He mentioned that the injury does not prevent him from doing most daily tasks but he is unable to do a 90-foot sprint.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to play again but the Yankees are unlikely to place him on the disabled list because rosters will be expanded in a few days. He is dealing with a great deal of inflammation in the leg and the only way for it to improve is getting more rest. Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will be the club's primary first baseman while Teixeira is out.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out again

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:32:56 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup. Teixeira said his leg is not feeling as good as he would hope and expects to undergo more tests.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup, so owners should monitor the injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games and is not the best option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira hitless in return

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:39:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was hitless in two at-bats Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros in his return to the lineup. He barely was able to run to first base on a fourth-inning groundout and he was removed in the seventh inning. "That's all I got," Teixeira said. "I ran as hard as I could.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was removed early, but the game was also a blowout. It appears he is going to tough it out through injury, but he is not recommended in FantasyScore since he is clearly not 100 percent.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira back at first base

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:02:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. Teixeira is batting fourth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: A sore leg has kept Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) out of the lineup for the past week. Standard procedure says you should keep a player out for a game or two to see how he responds, but Teixeira has been hitting the ball well and has a .333 mark against Keuchel.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to avoid DL

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:57:44 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was out for the seventh straight game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Houston Astros due to a bruised right shin. He is starting to feel better, although he cannot run well. "The running is still a little bit of a struggled," Teixeira said. He was on deck for a pinch-hitting appearance in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the missed time, he was available as a pinch hitter and that means he will avoid a stint on the 15-day disabled list. FantasyScore players will want to avoid Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira unable to run yet

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:14:19 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) is unable to run yet, but he thinks he could be available to pinch hit Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will avoid the DL for now, but there remains no timetable for his return to the starting lineup. Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has two home runs and six RBI in 33 at-bats for the Yanks in Teixeira's place so far, and he'll start again tonight against Astros pitcher Scott Feldman. Bird is a cheap daily buy with plenty of power that is more intriguing at home in the Bronx.
