The Yankees just passed along this update on Mark Teixeira…

Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira was seen today by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He underwent an MRI which showed an irritation of his Grade 1 left calf strain. Teixeira will be evaluated on a weekly basis moving forward, and is expected to be unavailable to play for 10-14 days.

Additionally, the Yankees announced that they will recall outfielder Melky Mesa on Tuesday. I have to assume he’ll be used primarily for his speed, and maybe to play some center field.
