Yankees get good news on Teixeira's wrist

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira has no new tears in the tendon sheath around his inflamed right wrist.

"That's a good thing," manager Joe Girardi told Newsday on Sunday. "If he was to re-tear it, that would probably be it for the season."

Teixeira got a cortisone shot Sunday. Girardi said he will be re-evaluated this week.

Teixeira left the Yankees' 6-2 loss to the Angels on Saturday in the fourth inning. The Yankees sent him back to New York for evaluation on his problematic wrist, which forced him to miss the first 53 games of the season.

Since returning from the DL on May 31, Teixeira went 8-for-53 with three homers and 12 RBIs. Hitting coach Kevin Long told Newsday that the first baseman probably wasn't 100 percent.

"I don't think it's been right since he's been here," Long said Saturday of the switch-hitting Teixeira's swing from the left side.

Girardi said Teixeira will be out for "a couple of days" while the club waits for the inflammation to subside.

Lyle Overbay filled in at first base Sunday.

BREWERS: Minor-league RHP Mike Fiers broke his right forearm Saturday at Triple-A Nashville when he was hit by a line drive. He's expected to be out for at least 9-12 weeks.

GIANTS: OF Angel Pagan, out since May 26 with a strained left hamstring, declined surgery and is receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection, CSN Bay Area reported.

INDIANS: 1B Nick Swisher was out of the lineup because of a sore left shoulder and could go on the disabled list. Swisher missed time earlier this season because of his shoulder.

RED SOX: RHP Pedro Beato was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, and RHP Rubby De La Rosa was optioned to Pawtucket.

ROCKIES: The contract of RHP Logan Kensing was selected from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and RHP Chris Volstad was optioned to Colorado Springs.

TWINS: OF Josh Willingham was out of the lineup after receiving a cortisone shot in his balky left knee.
