Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is on the DL with a strained right hamstring and hasn't played since April 4. Now, though, his return is in sight. Bryan Hoch of MLB.com writes that Teixeira, who saw three innings of minor-league extended spring training action on Thursday, is set to return to the Yankee lineup on Sunday against Tampa Bay.

The 34-year-old Teixeira is off to a slow start this season, as he's batting .250/.308/.250, but that's across a minuscule sample of just 13 plate appearances. Last season, he was limited to just 15 games, largely because of a wrist injury that eventually required surgery. In 2012, Teixeira hit 24 homers in 123 games and won a Gold Glove.
