Yankees | Mark Teixeira has strained hamstring

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) suffered a strained right hamstring during the game Friday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly Johnson likely will take over at first base if Teixeira misses a decent amount of time. Johnson could become an option in mixed leagues especially if he gains first base eligibility. Yangervis Solarte and Dean Anna could see time at third base if Johnson moves to first base. Both could have value in AL-only leagues, but Solarte should be the top target. Teixeira could be placed on the disabled list if the injury will take weeks to heal.
