• Mark Teixeira had a cortisone shot in his left wrist and was examined by a specialist before the game. He said the shot will “put me over the top.” Teixeira said he would be playing tomorrow.
• Xavier Nady had a second x-ray today and will get a CT scan tomorrow on his right elbow. While he is on the 15-day disabled list, there seems to be at least some hope that his injury is not a completely torn ligament that will require a second Tommy John surgery.
(Meanwhile, Tommy John was here today. Just saying.)
“If there’s a way I can avoid that surgery again, that’s the route I want to take,” Nady said. “They’re taking all the tests they can and that’s good.”
