Mark Teixeira (shin) has been sent back to New York to undergo more tests and has been ruled out for the series versus the Red Sox.
The Yankees wish they had a mulligan on this one, as it's clear Teixeira should have been placed on the disabled list a while ago. As it is, they won't make a move now with rosters expanding on Tuesday. Obviously more will be known when the test results come back, but Teixeira is simply in too much pain to play now. Alex Rodriguez is expected to get a start at first base on Wednesday, but Greg Bird will continue to play versus righties.
