Mark Teixeira has been diagnosed with inflammation in his left wrist and given a cortisone injection. The Yankees say he will be reevaluated in three days.

This morning’s MRI revealed no structural damage in the wrist that began bothering Teixeira on Sunday night and forced him out of last night’s game. He was evaluated by Dr. Christopher Ahmad and Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
