TAMPA, Fla. (AP) New York first baseman Mark Teixeira has rejoined the Yankees at spring training after hurting his right wrist earlier this month and plans to start limited baseball drills in about a week.
Teixeira said on Sunday at George M. Steinbrenner Field that he's hopefully of playing again in a month or two. He strained the wrist while swinging a weighted bat left-handed off a tee Mar. 5 in an indoor cage during pregame warm-ups with the U.S. team for the World Baseball Classic.
Teixeira expects to start swinging a bat-one handed and fielding grounders after a week of cardio work. He says the wrist is stiff, but there is no pain.
