Yankees | More on Mark Teixeira

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he is leaning toward putting 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) on the disabled list. Teixeira won't play for a week at the minimum after receiving a cortisone shot in his right wrist. Cashman said that Teixeira doesn't need season-ending surgery yet, but it's a possibility. Hitting coach Kevin Long thinks Teixeira is a "shell" of himself because his injured wrist has caused his left-handed swing to lack the "whip and the bat speed you see right-handed."
