Yankees' Mark Teixeira: A-Rod 'will be fine over there' at first base
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez shifted across the infield on Friday. The embattled slugger fielded grounders and took part in various drills including bunt defense, according to the Associated Press.

Rodriguez missed all of last season after being suspended for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. With Chase Headley slated to be the team's starting third baseman, Rodriguez will compete for at-bats as a designated hitter and could see some time behind Headley at third and Mark Teixeira at first.

Teixeira told reporters that Rodriguez will fit just fine at first.

"I think what will make Alex have a shorter learning curve is his baseball IQ," Teixeira said, per Newsday. "He'll be fine over there."

Rodriguez, who will turn 40 in July, hit .244/.348/.423 over 156 at-bats back in 2013. He will begin early workouts on Saturday.

Yankees' Mark Teixeira: 'I expect to have a great year' in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira arrived to spring training Wednesday brimming with confidence following a productive offseason. Teixeira overhauled his diet and workout plan, as he cut gluten, dairy and sugar from his diet and went back to weight-heavy workouts, per The Journal News.

“I was weaker than I’d probably ever been in my whole career last year just because of the injury the year before and not being able to work out like I usually do,” Teixeira said. “This was just a great offseason all around. … I probably lost two pounds; 15 pounds of fat I lost and gained 13 pounds of muscle, so I ended up losing about two pounds. Just shows how much deficit there was.”

Teixeira hasn't played more than 123 games in any of the last three seasons due to injury issues. His offense has suffered during that time, as he has hit just .229 with a .431 slugging percentage since 2012. Still, Teixeira appears confident he will have a bounce-back year in 2015.

“I’ve always been a big, strong guy,” he said. “Always been a big weight lifter. I convinced myself one offseason that I wanted to work on my swing more, and swung so much that I blew out my wrist. You learn. You learn from mistakes. I think you’re always learning from mistakes. I kind of basically just went back to what I’ve always done, and that’s just hit the weights really hard because I need to be strong. I’m a power hitter, a guy that has to drive the ball from both sides of the plate, and that’s what I did this offseason.

"Last year, I came into spring training hoping to have a good year. I really didn’t know where I was. I knew I wasn’t feeling great, knew I wasn’t 100 percent. This year I expect to have a great year.”

Yankees' Teixeira worked on 'getting stronger' during offseason
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira worked on "getting stronger" this offseason, according to the New York Post.

"This offseason, I got to go back to working out and getting strong," Teixeira said. "That’s who I am. I’m a big, power-hitting first baseman and I have to be strong. Last year I wasn’t." Teixeira tore a tendon in his wrist in 2013, and that limited his ability to get ready for the 2014 season. Teixeira said the biggest difference this offseason was that he didn't have any limitations.

"The beautiful thing was there was no rehab," he said. "Last offseason was all about rehab, and that’s not fun. This offseason has been all about getting my strength back, and I feel good." 

The 34-year-old Teixeira hit .216/.313/.398 over 440 at-bats last season. He's expected to open the season as the team's starter at first.

Cashman: Mark Teixeira is 'definitely an everyday first baseman'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman appears confident first baseman Mark Teixeira won't be as injury prone in 2015, per NJ.com.

Teixeira payed in just 123 games in 2014 due to a myriad of injuries, which included problems with his surgically repaired wrist, strained hamstring, sore knee, tired legs, dizziness, lacerated left hand and strained oblique.

"I don’t think we’ll have the same issues this year as we had last year," Cashman said. "I think Mark Teixeira is definitely an everyday first baseman. I think he’ll prove that this year. I think last year is something he felt will be part of the process and he feels it won’t be part of this year’s process. In terms of his recovery and rehab, last year was expected for him. And that won’t be expected going forward."

Yankees veteran Mark Teixeira seeking strength in offseason
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yankees aging first baseman Mark Teixeira has lamented what he called a "bad season" and plans on improving his upper-body strength before next year.

Teixeira batted a career-low .216 (aside from 2013, when he had just 53 at-bats), though he did rack up 23 home runs and 62 RBI in 440 at-bats. He told ESPN that he was negatively affected coming off a right wrist injury. But he added that he needs to get stronger if he wants to rebound.

"I didn't realize how weak I was upper-body," he said. "I'm trying to be working a lot harder. That will be my adjustment this year."

Teixeira will turn 35 years old on April 15.
