Player Notes
Mark Teixeira received a cortisone injection for his sore neck on Thursday.

Advice: He's expected to miss the next three games, including Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays. Teixeira began experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday, but an MRI ruled out anything serious. He should back in action Sunday if the cortisone has the intended effect.

Mark Teixeira is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot for his renewed neck discomfort.

Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the club is not considering placing Teixeira on the disabled list yet, but he's going to have to miss at least a couple more games while the cortisone takes effect. The veteran first baseman underwent an MRI on Wednesday afternoon, which apparently showed no major structural damage. He has been bothered by neck spasms for much of May.

Mark Teixeira (neck) underwent an MRI on Wednesday.

Advice: The Yankees are still waiting on the results of the MRI. Neck spasms have bothered Teixeira on-and-off throughout the month of May. A stint on the disabled list is in play if the testing results are not to the team's liking. Teixeira is hitting just .195/.294/.282 over 149 at-bats this season.

Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday with renewed neck discomfort.

Advice: He has three homers in nine career at-bats against the Blue Jays' starter, Marco Estrada, so it's a big absence. Teixeira is considered day-to-day for now.

Mark Teixeira went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Teixeira wasn't supposed to be one of the Yankees' problems this year after his outstanding 2015, but here he is with a .203 average and about four times as many strikeouts (41) as RBI (11) in 133 at-bats. He's a big reason the team is struggling so mightily when it comes to scoring runs, and the Yankees should think about giving him some bench time after Alex Rodriguez returns.
