Player Notes
Mark Teixeira provided the Yankees their only run in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

Advice: It was a solo home run to left-center off of Andrew Heaney, one of only two Yankee hits on the evening. He finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Teixeira hadn't homered since June 15, but has 19 on the season with 54 RBI and a .246/.359/.536 triple-slash line.

Mark Teixeira finished 3-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' rout of the Phillies on Wednesday.

Advice: That cortisone shot for his neck injury apparently did the trick. All of Teixeira's hits were singles, but he drove in one run in the Yankees' three-run fourth inning and another run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. The veteran first baseman is batting .259/.369/.557 with 51 RBI in 66 games this season.

An MRI on Mark Teixeira's neck came back negative.

Advice: Teixeira isn't dealing with anything serious, although he was given a cortisone injection in hopes of speeding up the healing process. He could miss a few more games while the shot takes effect.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) back in the lineup until at least Wednesday.

Advice: Teixeira has been bothered by a neck issue for about 10 days and was sent for an MRI. He's sitting out Monday and will be on the bench Tuesday, as well. "It's hard to turn," Girardi said. "I think we've all experienced that. It can be frustrating, and it's irritating. It's something that's tough to play in, because obviously they have to turn a lot in this game."

Advice: Garrett Jones is starting at first base and batting sixth against Phillies right-hander Kevin Correia. Teixeira boasts a stellar .920 OPS with 18 home runs and 49 RBI in 65 games this season, but this neck issue won't seem to go away. He is undergoing an MRI.
