Yankees | Mark Teixeira could return next week

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) could be activated from the 60-day disabled list as early as next Thursday, and he's scheduled to play in extended spring games Saturday, May 25, through next Tuesday, and then play two games for Double-A Trenton Wednesday and Thursday. "We took it very conservative for the first month," Teixeira said. "The last two weeks in Tampa have been great. It's been really good."

Fantasy Tip: Tex said he feels great and would have been playing weeks ago if it were up to him. But due to the nature of his injury, the team has been extremely cautious, because a setback at this point would probably cause him to miss the entire season. Expect him to return no later than next weekend, which is music to his owners' ears. Begin to make plans to get him back into your lineup. Lyle Overbay, who has been a nice surprise for those riding him in AL leagues, could be cut by the Yanks when Tex returns.
