Teixeira Out with Wrist Injury
Mark Teixeira has sustained a wrist injury and will be out for 8-10 weeks. This recent injury, coupled with that of Granderson, will ensure diminished power in the first month of baseball. The trouble with the Teixeira injury is that I'm not so sure rest alone will resolve the problem. Jose Bautista from Toronto had a similar injury last year and it ended in season ending surgery. My guess is that the rest will get him back on the field, we'll watch him struggle for a couple months, and then he'll be off to get the surgery he really needs. I hope I'm wrong, but in the meantime, we'll get to watch any number of minor leaguers compete for that spot. Could be exciting. Or amazingly boring. Only time will tell.
