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.

Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira feels he can still play 150 games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira hasn't played 150-plus games since the 2011 season and hasn't surpassed 123 games over the last three seasons, which has a lot to do with his surgically repaired right wrist.

However, the 34-year-old first baseman still feels he is capable of playing in 150 games as he enters his 13th MLB season in 2015.

"You’d have to be crazy to think we wouldn’t be a little bit better if I was healthier," Teixeira said Monday, per the New York Daily News. "I played 123 games? I want to play 150 and I want to be healthy and strong for 150. So that’s what I expect out of myself."

Teixeira reinjured himself during Saturday's game, but still wants to play. He will ask the doctor whether it's safe to receive another cortisone shot in his wrist.
