Teixeira out for the season

Published Jun. 27, 2013

NEW YORK — Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira will have season-ending surgery on his right wrist.

Yankees team physician Christopher Ahmad determined after an MRI exam the torn tendon sheath had not adequately healed, the team said Wednesday. Three other doctors concurred with the diagnosis.

Recovery time is projected at six months.

Teixeira was hurt while hitting off a tee March 5, when he was with the U.S. team at the World Baseball Classic. He made his season debut May 31, then came out of a game June 15 because of inflammation. He went back on the disabled list and did not respond to a cortisone shot.

The two-time All-Star was batting .151 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 53 at-bats. He is one of several key Yankees who have missed a substantial part of the season, including SS Derek Jeter, 3B Alex Rodriguez and OF Curtis Granderson.

WORRIES FOR ACE: Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz shut down a bullpen session and was scheduled for an MRI exam. Buchholz, 9-0 with a majors-best 1.71 ERA, has been on the disabled list since June 9 with a neck strain.

ANGELS: RHP Tommy Hanson was scratched from his start after feeling tightness in his right forearm.

ASTROS: OF Justin Maxwell sustained a mild concussion while trying to make a diving catch Tuesday night.

INDIANS: SS Asdrubal Cabrera, out since June 3 with a right quadriceps strain, was activated from the disabled list. INF John McDonald was designated for assignment. … Closer Chris Perez, out since May 27 with a strained right (pitching) shoulder, is expected to be activated today.

METS: Manager Terry Collins said rookie RHP Zack Wheeler was tipping his breaking pitches during a rough start Tuesday night. The team plans to work with him before his next scheduled start Sunday.

ORIOLES: RHP Dylan Bundy, regarded as one of baseball's top prospects, was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament and is scheduled to have reconstructive elbow surgery today. Bundy, 20, hasn't pitched this season because of elbow soreness.

ROCKIES: RHP Rafael Betancourt, out since May 31 with a right groin strain, is expected to be activated Friday and resume his closer duties.

WHITE SOX: RHP Jake Peavy, out since June 5 with a non-displaced fracture in his rib cage, threw for about seven minutes from about 75 feet and reported no physical issues.
