Yankees | Mark Teixeira taking swings

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) has taken some swings in a pool as part of his rehab, and he is still hoping to return within his initial prognosis of eight to 10 weeks. He took swings in a pool Tuesday, April 16, and was cleared to take swings in the cages Wednesday, April 17, without facing pitchers. Teixeira is encouraged by his progress so far.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira said the process to get him back playing in rehab games will be a slow one, but he still expects to get back on his original timetable, which is good news. Unless he has a setback, expect him to be back in mid-May. Lyle Overbay's usefulness in AL leagues will come to an end when Tex comes back.
