Yankees | Mark Teixeira not trusting his wrist

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) admitted he still doesn't trust his surgically repaired wrist in his swing. He's hitting .091 this spring. "I'm just trying to protect it," Teixeira said. "Taking your 'A' swing, taking that swing that is 100 percent and I need to trust that I can do that and not feel pain. I need to finish my swing. Overall, the wrist is feeling good, it's getting stronger, but I just need to mechanically make sure I'm taking the right swings,"

Fantasy Tip: Expect an adjustment period for Tex. Throughout his career, he has hit at a much higher clip in the second half. If he's healthy, you can expect the same to hold true this season.
