Report: Yankees' Mark Teixeira expected back in lineup on Sunday
The Yankees are poised to get back 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) by the end of the weekend.
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.
