Pregame notes: Teixeira expects to play Monday

Posted by: Josh Thomson - Posted in Notes on Aug 19, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Hello, friends. Josh Thomson here in for Chad tonight.

If you missed my Twitter update from this afternoon, Mark Teixeira said that he expects to play tomorrow night in Chicago.

“That’s the goal,” he said. “I guess I could probably push it today, but we don’t really want any setbacks. We don’t want anything to get inflamed again, so we’re just going to take it easy again.”

Wearing a compression sleeve on his left wrist, Teixeira took ground balls and did some throwing at first during batting practice. He did not appear to experience any discomfort.

He still has not swung a bat, knowing from experience that rest is the best remedy. He will attempt to hit prior to tomorrow night’s game, but expects to feel fine. He has not received a second cortisone shot and has no immediate plans to.

“I have a good feeling that it’s getting better,” Teixeira said. “This is the third day off. Two weeks ago I took three days off and it felt pretty good. We’re just kind of doing a second round of that off time.”

Joe Girardi is more cautious. He wants to see Teixeira swing pain-free before penciling the first baseman back into the lineup.

“We’ll have to see when he goes through some drills tomorrow how he feels,” Girardi said. “We might have a late lineup or a lineup change depending on what happens. But we’re going to give it a day and see where he is tomorrow.”

• Curtis Granderson will start a game batting cleanup for the first time as a Yankee and only the second time in his career. In his only other start as a cleanup hitter Granderson went 1 for 4 with a solo home run as a Tiger.

A recent slump had basically sent Granderson’s batting average to a season-low .235, but he has responded with consecutive two-hit games. Both included a homer.

“I think it’s important,” Girardi said. “He went through somewhat of a difficult time, but he seems to be coming out of it. Maybe it was the couple days off we gave him. I like the way he’s swinging now.”

Girardi said another factor in his decision tonight was Granderson’s success against Boston starter Josh Beckett.

• Alex Rodriguez and Andy Pettitte were both scheduled to receive X-rays at some point tonight. Rodriguez continued to work out on the field prior to the game. Tonight, he fielded balls barehanded near third base and made various throws to first.

• Here’s Girardi on whether Pedro Feliciano, who threw another scoreless inning last night, should be considered a serious option this season: “We hope so. We hope that he’s a player in September. I think that’s why he’s going through what he’s going through. If we didn’t think he could help us, we wouldn’t be putting him through this.”

    I think this is a pretty important game. We have to keep the Rays at bay. They are playing the best ball right now and they are a serious threat. Our offense must on point for the next 3 weeks. We want to win the East———

    i would be elated if the yankees jump all over beckett and he’s out of the game by the 3rd inning

    What are Montero’s season numbers Vs LHP and in the 2nd half? Kinda good…..small samples are funny things and samples of any kind are inconclusive with rookies…..Mike Trout….bad last year…..MVP this year.

    *******

    Error 201 – - – Does not compute – contradiction.

    Sentence one provides a sample size in a rookie season – sample size being the 2nd half and vs. LHP.

    Then sentence two provides a conclusion that sample sizes in a rookie season are inconclusive – thus directly contradicting the previous sentences assertion that the sample means something: “Kinda good.”

    Error 405 – - – Does not compute – irrelevant comparison to special hitter Mike Trout. Montero is not a special hitter yet.

    Mike Trout is in his rookie season this year – the same as Montero. Comparing Montero this year to Trout’s struggles last year is irrelevant. Both are rookies this season – and I believe Trout is younger than Montero by a year or possibly more. And it is insulting to suggest Montero is in the same league as Trout – Trout is by far the more complete player and better player of the two – - – -

  4. Bret The Hitman August 19th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Montero OPS = .696

    Good thing that team in Siberia can afford to give their DH “valuable service time” while he produces far below what Ibanez produces.

  5. jacksquat August 19th, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Wow, Pitt took the lead in the top of the 17th and then the Cards tied it in the bottom of the 17th. That’s gotta suck.

  6. Ken Phelps August 19th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Is it possible to get through a game without a montero debate?

  20. good info August 10th, 2014 at 7:13 am

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  24. Candida Quarto August 10th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  35. Wilson Khoun August 11th, 2014 at 4:44 pm

    excellent post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  37. Phyliss Egerer August 11th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    I wanted to compose you a bit of note to be able to say thanks a lot over again relating to the pleasing principles you have discussed in this article.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
