"There's inflammation, and even though he's hurt, that's probably the best-case scenario we could have got," Yankees skipper Joe Girardi said. "That's a good thing. If he was to re-tear it, that would probably be it for the season."
Teixeira felt pain in the wrist in the Yankees' game versus the Los Angeles Angels Saturday, and was removed in the fourth inning.
"He's not a player for at least a couple days," Girardi said. "We'll re-evaluate him after a couple days and see where we're at."
