Yankees’ Teixeira to Miss 8-10 Weeks After Injuring Right Wrist

March 7 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Yankees will be without Mark Teixeira for eight to 10 weeks after the first baseman strained a tendon in his right wrist while taking swings in a batting cage.

The 32-year-old Teixeira will need four weeks of complete rest, Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said on ESPN New York 98.7 last night. He said he didn’t know who would take Teixeira’s place.

Teixeira was injured two days ago while practicing with the U.S. squad for the World Baseball Classic.

Teixeira has averaged 32 home runs and 101 runs batted in since 2010. He batted .251 with 24 homers and 84 RBI last season, his fourth with the Yankees.

Also during spring training, outfielder Curtis Granderson broke his arm and is out for two months. Pitcher Phil Hughes has a bulging disk in his upper back and shortstop Derek Jeter is recovering from the broken ankle he sustained in last year’s playoffs. Third baseman Alex Rodriguez is out until midseason following hip surgery.

Cashman himself broke his ankle during a charity skydiving exhibition this week.

The Yankees open their 2013 Major League Baseball campaign April 1 versus the Boston Red Sox.
