Yankees place Mark Teixeira on Disabled List

  • David Whitlock

It only took three games and one at bat before Mark Teixeira’s seemingly glass body gave out yet again.  The Yankees 1B was placed on the DL on Saturday, according to a tweet from the Yankees official Twitter account:

Teix was off to a decent start with the 2-2 Yankees.  It appears Kelly Johnson will move from 3B to 1B while Teixeira’s bum hammy heals.  Teixeira missed all but 15 games in 2013 after injuring his wrist while preparing for the World Baseball Classic before the season.  He tried to give it a go in May and June, but it wouldn’t work and he required surgery after the season.

The Yankees went on a spending spree this offseason (helped by some salary relief from the suspended Alex Rodriguez) and hope to contend and surpass their rivals, the World Champion Boston Red Sox.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
