Mark Teixeira: Strained Right Wrist; Out 8-10 Weeks

Rotowire.com
Update: Teixeira has a strained right wrist tendon and will be out 8-to-10 weeks, Jack Curry of YES reports.

Recommendation: With an absence of that length, Teixeira could be out of commission until early or mid-May. According to manager Joe Girardi, Teixeira will rest for four weeks before beginning the rehab process. Presumably, Kevin Youkilis will move over to play first base while Eduardo Nunez joins the lineup as a regular option at third base for the Yankees.
