Yankees | Mark Teixeira out two more weeks

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:10:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) will be out at least two more weeks with a lingering bone bruise on his right shin, according to general manager Brian Cashman. More tests Monday, Aug. 31, didn't show any new damage, but Teixeira needs to be completely off of his leg for his injury to heal. He'll be on crutches for an unknown timetable, and the possibility remains that he won't play again this year. Teixeira leads the Yankees in home runs (31), RBI (79) and OPS (.905). He also received an anti-inflammatory injection.

Fantasy Tip: Don't plan on using Teixeira ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) for the rest of the season, and he's now a candidate to be dropped in most other fantasy formats since it's looking unlikely he can make much of an impact in September. Greg Bird's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) value for the rest of the season will go up slightly, and he's a decent value target on FantasyScore for his power stroke.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira has bone bruise

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:57:49 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira's (shin) MRI exam revealed a bone bruise that was more serious than the team initially thought, according to manager Joe Girardi. Teixeira will be on crutches for "a few days," and the team isn't ruling out his return this year.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Teixeira ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) doesn't have any broken bones or fractures in his leg. The bad news is he may not play much in the season's final month, meaning he'll be dead weight for his fantasy owners. It's unwise to rely on him at FantasyScore in September, even if he comes back. Greg Bird ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts at first base in his absence, and he's a value play for his power in daily formats.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out for Red Sox series

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:41:09 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) has returned to New York to undergo further tests and is not expected to play during the series against the Boston Red Sox, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will continue to see everyday at-bats for the duration of Teixeira's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) absence. Continue to be patient with Teixeira in seasonal formats, but it isn't out of the question to replace him if you need production in the now. Check back for updates.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:50:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is still dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has one hit and one RBI in his last four games and may not be the best option for owner on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira having difficulty running

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:51:24 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) said the deep bone bruise in his right leg is not improving and has made it difficult for him to run. "It's not as good as I would have hoped," he said. "Running is still a big struggle. I can't run. It's just as simple as that. It's very frustrating." He mentioned that the injury does not prevent him from doing most daily tasks but he is unable to do a 90-foot sprint.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to play again but the Yankees are unlikely to place him on the disabled list because rosters will be expanded in a few days. He is dealing with a great deal of inflammation in the leg and the only way for it to improve is getting more rest. Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will be the club's primary first baseman while Teixeira is out.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out again

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:32:56 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup. Teixeira said his leg is not feeling as good as he would hope and expects to undergo more tests.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup, so owners should monitor the injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games and is not the best option on FantasyScore.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:34:11 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Greg Bird is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: No word on whether it's a planned day off or Tex suffered a setback in his return from a shin injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a low-end option against Collin McHugh on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira hitless in return

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:39:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was hitless in two at-bats Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros in his return to the lineup. He barely was able to run to first base on a fourth-inning groundout and he was removed in the seventh inning. "That's all I got," Teixeira said. "I ran as hard as I could.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was removed early, but the game was also a blowout. It appears he is going to tough it out through injury, but he is not recommended in FantasyScore since he is clearly not 100 percent.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira back at first base

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:02:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. Teixeira is batting fourth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: A sore leg has kept Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) out of the lineup for the past week. Standard procedure says you should keep a player out for a game or two to see how he responds, but Teixeira has been hitting the ball well and has a .333 mark against Keuchel.
