Mark Teixeira (foot) went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Teixeira burned Giants starter Jeff Samardzija for a solo home run in the second inning. After hitting a stellar .255/.357/.548 with 31 homers and 79 RBI last season, the 2016 campaign has been nothing short of a nightmare for Teixeira. Injuries have limited the veteran slugger to 67 games played, and when he has played, the results have been ugly. Like .188/.269/.325 triple-slash ugly. One can always hope that he finds himself in the final two months of the season, but there is nothing in Teixeira's season-long numbers that would suggest a major hot streak might be coming down the pike.

Mark Teixeira (foot) homered and drew two walks in his return to the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

Teixeira missed a handful of games after fouling a ball off his left foot over the weekend. The veteran first baseman slugged a solo shot in the fourth inning off Orioles starter Yovani Gallardo and then tallied his second RBI of the evening on a bases-loaded walk in the sixth. Teixeira is still batting just .189/.271/.320 with eight home runs and 22 RBI in 64 total games this season.

Jul 17 - 9:35 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday that Mark Teixeira is dealing with a sore knee and will sit out on Saturday against the Indians.

Teixeira homered twice in the Yankees' victory over the Padres on Sunday, but he'll take a day off Monday versus White Sox right-hander James Shields. Rob Refsnyder is starting at first base and batting ninth. Alex Rodriguez is also absent Monday, with Carlos Beltran taking a turn at DH.
Jul 4 - 12:16 PM

Mark Teixeira blasted a pair of home runs and drove home three on Sunday, powering the Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Padres in San Diego.

Teixeira clubbed a solo homer off of Carlos Villanueva leading off the eighth inning, increasing the Bombers' lead to 3-1. He added a two-run blast as part of a three-run rally in the ninth that added much needed insurance. Even with his 2-for-5 effort on Sunday, the veteran slugger is hitting just .192/.276/.323 with seven homers and 17 RBI on the season.
Jul 3 - 8:05 PM

Teixeira's dinger off of Luke Jackson in the seventh inning looked like it would prove to be the winning run, but the Rangers came back with four runs in the top of the ninth in the rain-delayed marathon. The Yankees' first baseman has gone deep in two of three games since returning from the disabled list.

Mark Teixeira went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins

Teixeira was just activated off the disabled list on Saturday after missing close to a month due to a cartilage tear in his right knee. His solo homer off Twins starter Tyler Duffey in the eighth inning provided the only Yankees run of the afternoon. Prior to the injury, the veteran slugger was slashing just .180/.271/.263. Fantasy owners should feel free to utilize him as normal moving forward, though it might be best to keep him on the bench until he starts to find something of an offensive groove.
Jun 26 - 3:42 PM

Yankees activated 1B Mark Teixeira from the 15-day disabled list.

The corresponding roster move isn't yet known. Teixeira has been sidelined since June 3 with a cartilage tear in his right knee, but he'll make his return Saturday and bat sixth against Twins right-hander Ervin Santana. The veteran slugger went 1-for-9 during a brief minor league rehab assignment and will return to a disappointing .180/.271/.263 batting line. Rob Refsnyder played well during his absence, but he's headed back to the bench for now.

Mark Teixeira (knee) felt good after his rehab debut Tuesday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Teixeira went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly, but those results are not all that important. "It’s really all about the health," he said. "There’s really nothing else that you can really simulate playing in a full game, and that’s what I have to get to." The veteran first baseman is hoping to be activated from the disabled list this Saturday. He was diagnosed with a cartilage tear in his right knee in early June.

Mark Teixeira (knee) is hoping to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Teixeira will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and will play three games for them before returning to the big club if all goes well. Teixeira has a cartilage tear in his right knee but will attempt to play through it rather than have surgery.
Jun 19 - 1:11 PM
