New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) is hoping to return from the disabled list on May 1. He hopes to resume swinging a bat by the middle of April and go on a minor league rehab assignment around a week before his return to the Yankees. Teixeira is working on exercises to increase the strength in his wrist currently. "If it never gets better then I would have to have surgery," he said. "That's only if it never gets better. But it's progressively gotten better, at this point. Absolutely it has. I can tell if it hurts doing anything. There are lots of tests that the doctors can do. And if any of those tests hurt then I can't swing a bat yet."
