Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira and OF Carlos Beltran, dealing with very different ailments, can breathe a sigh of relief. For now, anyway.

Teixeira, who sat out a three-game series in St. Louis this week because of soreness in his surgically repaired right wrist, was evaluated by his surgeon, Dr. Keith Raskin, late Thursday morning. Raskin confirmed what was announced Tuesday as the likely issue — inflammation.

"It was what we expected," GM Brian Cashman said. "It was what they felt it was in St. Louis and what he (Teixeira) was getting over the phone (from Raskin). Obviously, it's positive reinforcement."

Positive in that there appears to be no new damage to the tendon sheath, which Raskin repaired in July. Teixeira is listed as day to day, though with four straight days off, he may return tonight when the Yankees open a series against the Twins.

Beltran took another step in the direction of dodging in-season surgery on the bone spur in his right elbow that has kept him out since May 13. He took 25 swings from each side of the plate Thursday morning in the indoor batting cage, receiving soft toss from hitting coach Kevin Long. Beltran did not experience discomfort and is scheduled to repeat the same workout today.

"So far, so good," Cashman said. "We're not out of the woods yet but we're certainly getting more hopeful."

Hopeful that Beltran can avoid surgery that would cost him what the Yankees have estimated to be 6-12 weeks.

athletics: Setup man Ryan Cook, on the disabled list since May 9 with a forearm strain, threw a bullpen session and could begin a rehab assignment within a week.

dodgers: RHP Chris Withrow has a ligament tear in his right elbow and needs Tommy John surgery. Withrow, 25, L.A.'s first-round pick in 2007, went on the disabled list and will proceed after consulting another doctor next week. "He's a guy we're going to miss," manager Don Mattingly said.

marlins: Miami downplayed RHP Henderson Alvarez's early exit from Wednesday's game with what was originally termed elbow stiffness. Alvarez believes he can make his next start.

royals: Kansas City shook up its coaching staff in an attempt to jumpstart a failing offense, making Dale Sveum hitting coach and Mike Jirschele third base coach. Pedro Grifol, who took over as hitting coach last season, will instruct catchers.

tigers: OF Rajai Davis sat out with lingering soreness in his left shoulder that he hurt diving for a fly ball Wednesday.

phillies: LHP Cliff Lee was examined by team doctors but was not cleared to throw because of an elbow strain. There was a "little, slight sensation" in the elbow, manager Ryne Sandberg said.
