Mark Teixeira will miss the next 8-10 weeks with a strained wrist according to YES’s Jack Curry. Teixeira is the latest Yankee to suffer an injury that will keep him out for the early portion of the season. Curtis Granderson fractured his forearm in February and was expected to miss 10 weeks. Alex Rodriguez had hip surgery and no one knows if he will even play this season. In addition to those injuries, The Journal News notes a few others:
Starting pitcher Phil Hughes has been shut down with a bulging disc in his upper back, top left-handed reliever Boone Logan has dealt with inflammation in his elbow, and prospects Slade Heathcott, Adonis Garcia and David Adams have dealt with thumb, wrist and back injuries. Even Cashman is facing a lengthy rehab after breaking his right fibula and dislocating his right ankle while skydiving on Monday.
The season begins on April 1st.
