Surgery has been recommended for New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist).

Both New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) and general manager Brian Cashman said that Teixeira won't return for the rest of the season as a platoon player against left-handers. Teixeira has little pain in his right wrist when he swings from the right side of the plate.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) still feels discomfort in his right wrist, according to general manager Brian Cashman, despite receiving a cortisone injection on June 16 intended to alleviate the pain of the partially torn tendon sheath in the joint. The news suggests season-ending surgery is becoming a likelier option. Teixeira said he has done no activity since the shot.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound good. Those in shallow mixed leagues shouldn't feel compelled to hold him. Others can wait around, if they desire or have the luxury because of their league's rules. Lyle Overbay is looking like a long-term investment for the Yanks and fantasy owners in deep leagues.

The New York Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 18, and recalled P Adam Warren and OF Zoilo Almonte from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, RP Chris Bootcheck was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: GM Brian Cashman hinted yesterday that this would happen. The good news is that there's no structural damage in Teixeira's right wrist. However, there's still the possibility that he'll need season-ending surgery. Monitor his progress and hold onto him for now. Lyle Overbay should see the majority of starts at first base again in Tex's absence, making him relevant in AL-only leagues once again.

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."
