Teixeira hoping to be back by the middle of May

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 24, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Mark Teixeira was hoping to be in the Yankees lineup on May 1, but that was always an extreme best-case scenario, and it’s now clearly an unrealistic goal.

“Obviously, I was being as optimistic as I could,” Teixeira said. “I wish that the very first time I swung a bat, I’d be like, wow, I feel 100 percent. But the chances of that happening weren’t there. I was always going to hope for that and prepare for that. The last thing you want to do is say, well, I don’t know when I’ll be back and then not train and not have that focus. I’m training, and I’m focused to try to get back on May 1, but it’s probably not going to happen.”

When Teixeira went down on March 5, he was given a recovery timetable of 8 to 10 weeks. Eight weeks will be April 30. Ten weeks will be May 14.

“There’s no setbacks, it just hasn’t loosened up yet,” Teixeira said. “So I’m hoping that that’s still the timetable.”

Teixiera said he feels no pain in his right wrist, which had a strain in the tendon sheath that has — according to his doctors — fully healed. He’s still not hitting off a tee, but that’s only because the tendon hasn’t gotten loose. Teixeira attributes that to a lack of use the past month or so.

“It’s stiffness. No pain,” he said. “I feel that I’m healed. I feel very comfortable that I’m healed, that there’s not going be any problems when I come back. But I do have to let it loosen up and really get more functional.”

Exactly when he’ll be back remains to be seen. On Monday, Curtis Granderson said he’ll need 50 to 70 at-bats before being activated. Teixeira — who played more than Granderson in spring training — said he doesn’t expect to need quite that many.

“That’s a lot,” Teixeira said. “I don’t think so. If I stink in the first 20, yeah, I’m going to need more. It’s all about timing. You can get your timing in the first 10 at-bats, or it might take you 50. The important thing is that you feel good, and then when you’re back with the big-league team, you can produce. You’re not just going to be dead weight in the lineup.”

    I knew it was bad the other day when my mother, the most sports inept human being on the planet, said ‘You know.. I really feel bad for Derek Jeter. He shouldn’t go out like that.’

    I almost choked on my chocolate milk (I never drink adult drinks when I’m with my parents. In fact, I still blow bubbles in that sh*t on the regular).

  2. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Would it kill them to institute a 30-day DL….?

  3. Jerkface April 24th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    And a 7 day DL

  4. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    We need ALL the DLs.

  5. Doreen April 24th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Seriously….

  6. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    And the tone of this post isn’t all that encouraging… I don’t see Tex returning before June. And that’s optimistic, IMO.

  7. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    “It’s stiffness. No pain,” he said. “I feel that I’m healed. I feel very comfortable that I’m healed, that there’s not going be any problems when I come back. But I do have to let it loosen up and really get more functional.”

    —————–

    I mean, it’s good there’s no pain but they said they wouldn’t let him play till it’s 100%….. If this guy or the org pushes himself in the line up too soon and his wrist falls off I’m gonna have a serious case of the sads. (And that’s only because they won’t let Youk play 1B and someone else take over at 3B lol, not cause I miss Tex. He’s the least missed player… I’d take Arod back over Tex right now.)

  8. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Wake me when he is playing and has remained fully healthy for a month.

  9. bruceb April 24th, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Even if Tex does start hitting again in mid-May, is June going to be his standard April? No point in any of them coming back until they have proved they are 100% healthy by playing a couple of weeks in the Minors. They need to better than what we have right now. Mind you, that wouldn’t be too hard in the case of Ben Francisco. I see he is now batting .080!

  10. astrocityfan April 24th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    im still of the opinion that he will reinjure it when he starts swinging. I have always thought he will need sugery and will wait to be pleasently surprised.

  11. yankeefeminista April 24th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Josh Bell just crushed a 2 run homer off Campos in the 4th. He just gave up another hit, so they are taking him out. Something like 58 pitches through 3, so not exactly a great day for him. No walks, 1 K.

  12. blake April 24th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    From prev thread….if you watch video of Tex from 5 years ago his LH swing was ugly then too….. He just had a lot more bat speed

  13. ac1 April 24th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    MLB launched All-Star balloting today. Chris Stewart, not Francisco Cervelli, is listed as the catching representative from the Yankees.
    ____

    HUH? Must be spending too much time paying people in Miami for help and investigating ARod and Cano to see what is actually happening in their sport.

  14. Tackelberry April 24th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    YF:

    Campos must be on a strict pitch count. Home run was the only hard hit ball. A bunt single, followed by the homer and then an infield single and Campos is out of the game?

  15. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    At least Betances pitched well yesterday. Something to build on.

  16. yankeefeminista April 24th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Tackel, absolutely RE: pitch count. No walks and GO-AO were good.

  17. G. Love April 24th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    I hope the new budget friendly front office is making Tex swear to the 700 club that he has no pain before they activate him since WBC insurance is footing his bill while he’s injured.

    If there’s stiffness, he shouldn’t swing a bat. We’ve been through these wrist things with guys and when they accept a certain level of pain/soreness and decide to play with it, they struggle at the plate.

    While I’d love to have him against LHP as an option, I’d rather keep the guys we have.

    I think the one trade I’m interested in making is Francisco for Adams. While I think Ben Francisco has some talent and could get by being a 25th guy, Adams seems to be hitting really well and can play 3rd pushing Youk to 1b against LHP.

    I don’t see why that’s such a risky move as you’re not getting LHP crushing from Francisco and when Grandy returns, Francisco has to go because Wells will most likely play the Andruw Jones role just with a little more playing time than we’re used to.

    I don’t think they are going to send down Boesch. I think they like the kid and he’s a long term cost certain piece they’ll need next year.

    But I do think Ichiro is going to get hot. He was nails last night.

    Like I said, after seeing the Rays they are basically us right now. If their pitching is solid, their lineup should put enough up to win but their lineup isn’t scaring anyone outside of Longoria and maybe Zobrist. We have a deeper lineup right now than they do and I’ll take our top 4 over theirs right now.

    I think the Red Sox and the O’s are the competition and we should beat both of them as the season goes deeper and deeper.

  18. pat April 24th, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    Stewart is on the ballot over Cervelli and Jeter is the listed Yankee SS? Whoever is responsible for that needs to be called out for it.

  19. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    The AS ballot is a typical failure of the CW.

    Yea I think we are getting to the point where they are going to have to make a move to get more RHed offense in the lineup….Francisco isn’t cutting it and they really don’t need him….Adams is the most logical guy to try now….especially with Youk hurting

  22. Doreen April 24th, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Unbelievable! Absolutely unbelievable.

    Are the names submitted by the teams, or does someone in MLB?

    Ridiculous.

    Best will be when Jeter wins the SS ballot for ASB.

    Like that year Palmeiro won the GG at 1B playing something like 15 games….

  24. pat April 24th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    A writer on Twitter is saying the teams submit the names.

    A couple of now minor leaguers are on the ballot too from other teams so not just the Yankees who guesstimated wrong.

  25. Doreen April 24th, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    Let’s all stuff the ballot box for Jeter (and Stewart!!!)

  26. Doreen April 24th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    They print the ballots far too early anyway. I’ve thought that for a few years now. The ballots come out too early, voting starts too early. They shouldn’t be out until June 1st.

    I can understand the wishful thinking about Jeter. The other, not really.

  28. Carly April 24th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Any reason Thomas Neal was removed? He hit another double. Maybe he is coming up to replace Francisco.

  29. bigdan22 April 24th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    Campos really doesn’t look like the same pitcher he was before he got hurt last year. And the K. Law report was brutal. Seems like we know where this is heading.

    I don’t think they’ll promote Adams although I wouldn’t mind it. Anything to remove Francisco. But Adams doesn’t even have 50 ABs yet in AAA so it’s probably best to wait till he gets to around 200. I see no downside in bringing up Neal. He looked good in ST and he’s hitting well now. Did ok last year in AAA. Lets use what we have.

  30. pat April 24th, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    and a few of the predictable turning AS ballot into the latest Jeter vs A-Rod situation…….

    MLB says Jeter on ASG ballot, no ARod a timing issue. League still thought Jeter back by early May when ballots (20M+) were being printed

  31. Carly April 24th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Please do not be hurt. Neal would be nice to see instead of Francisco

    Donnie Collins?@RailRidersTT1h
    If Neal is hurt, and it’s speculation at this point, RailRiders will need an OF ASAP. They only have three on the roster.

    Donnie Collins?@RailRidersTT1h
    I am not sure what happened with Neal. He doubled last inning, but didn’t seem hurt. Did not come out for pinch runner.

  32. Carly April 24th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Donnie Collins?@RailRidersTT1m
    Final line on Mark Montgomery: 2 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 3 bb, 1 k.

  33. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Francisco could be the OF that the RailRiders need. Exchange him for Adams.

  34. ac1 April 24th, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Can we all write in for A-Rod as a center fielder?
    I mean this ballot is a joke anyway….
    Havent looked beyond us but do they have Pujols at 1b?

  35. ac1 April 24th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Donnie Collins ?@RailRidersTT 3m

    Best play of the year defensively for the RailRiders. Diving stop by Adams. Terrific scoop by Dan Johnson. Somehow, Eppley escapes inning.
    _____

    But how can this be? You mean Adams can hit AND field? Good thing he is helping that AAA lineup because we sure dont need a RH 3B that can hit and field on our team…..

  36. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Isn’t Musty back from injury now…? I honestly don’t care which it is, but Adams or the Must Man should be called up.

    Agreed. All three should be looking at CMW too. Wang has experience we know the Yankees love. A few good starts in AAA and Nova will be watching very carefully at the train of starters tailing him….

  45. Russell Munson April 24th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I liked this post better the first time, when it was called “Teixeira hoping to be back by the first of May.”

  46. ac1 April 24th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I’d also give Tex the full 30 days in the minors. It usually takes him a month to figure out how to hit each year anyway.

  47. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    That is a good point. If Montgomery is going to be used as often as Melancon was, there is no point in bringing him up. They have to have a commitment to use him regularly.

  48. bigdan22 April 24th, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    I’d be careful with Montgomery. Isn’t this his first exposure to AAA? His numbers last year were out of this world, but for me, he was maybe the most disappointing player I saw in Spring Training. Upper 80s fastball with only so-so command of that killer slider. I don’t think that will play in the MLs. I’d like to know what his fb his readings are now. I think I was more impressed with Preston Clairborne. He threw quite a bit harder if I’m not mistaken.

    ——————

    He’d only be pitching in low leverage situations under Girardi… we need to see what he can do in the bigs, and since we can’t ruin him like we can Phelps I’d rather have him up here. He might also end up being very useful next year when we’re looking at a depleted pen. Get him as much big league experience as you can this year…

  50. pat April 24th, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Here’s the AS Game ballot. Tex and Curtis are on it too.

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/.....s_Articles

  51. Russell Munson April 24th, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    I think Girardi would give Montgomery the usage he ‘earns.’ He’ll start slow in less important situations but will get to pitch more often and in more crucial situations if he pitches well.

  52. bigdan22 April 24th, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    No question. Regardless of the velocity readings, if he continues to do well in AAA, Montgomery needs to be promoted this season. But I’d wait a little bit. Ever since Hughes’ first start, I didn’t like the idea of Phelps and Warren together on the ML roster. Still don’t. Doesn’t make sense.

  53. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    You can’t earn usage if you aren’t used regularly, and if a reliever isn’t used regularly, what you see may not be indicative of his true talent.

  54. Bo knows April 24th, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    I see Mesa is back in the “Combat Zone”. Three SOs, the last one with bases loaded.

  55. Tackelberry April 24th, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    Adams with a big 2 out 2 run single to put Scranton ahead 4-2. Get him up here now!

  56. Bo knows April 24th, 2013 at 1:26 pm

    I’d like to see Neal over Adams. Give Adams another month, he’s just out of AA.

  57. Doreen April 24th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    “He’s got nothing left to learn in the minors”

    Be careful what you say, and wish for. This seemingly harmless sentence has been uttered about several other Yankees pitching prospects…there’s always something more to learn. today’s final line on Montgomery was 3 BBs. Not something you really want, right?

  58. Russell Munson April 24th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    “You can’t earn usage if you aren’t used regularly, and if a reliever isn’t used regularly, what you see may not be indicative of his true talent.”

    True, but Girardi used Eppley and Wade a lot and I could see him doing the same with Montgomery.

    I wouldn’t assume how Girardi handled Melancon is how he’d handle Montgomery. Girardi has managed his bullpens much better than Torre ever did.

  59. UnKnown April 24th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    It would be awesome if Jeter’s first game back was the All-Star game. :grin:

    __

    So?

    We dont need Thomas Neal, we need a RH bat to play 3B. Adam is 25, i think it is worth it to NOW see what he can give us, so we know whether we need to get a 3b next year (alex should be full time dh)..

  61. bigdan22 April 24th, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    You have to be careful with box scores and minor league relief pitchers. Especially this early. There could be a guy in Scranton who’s throwing lights out but gave up a couple cheap runs and his line doesn’t look too pretty. Anyway, the Yanks really need to send Warren or Phelps down to start and replace him with a real bullpen arm.

  62. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    I could see Girardi trying to work Montgomery (Monty?) in the way he was trying with Kelly. In a blow out you used him for a full inning, in close games try him for just one batter.

  63. Russell Munson April 24th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    “(Monty?)”

    Marky works too.

  64. Jerkface April 24th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Melancon wasn’t really terrible overall for the Yankees, he just got no usage what so ever. Once he got regular work in Sept 09 he put together a solid month. Even D-Rob had a 5 ERA year while learning the ropes.

  65. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Girardi has managed his bullpens much better than Torre ever did.
    -

    When he didn’t have the perfect pen, Torre was awful. So yeah, Girardi is better, but he still is prone to biases.

  66. blake April 24th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Relievers shelf lives aren’t that long to begin with in general…..since Monty is a reliever I wouldn’t really worth about service time and Id get him up as soon as he can help

  67. Russell Munson April 24th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    “Even D-Rob had a 5 ERA year while learning the ropes.”

    Robertson really forced Girardi’s hand. It took a long time for Joe to realize he was better than Joba.

  68. jacksquat April 24th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Imo the only thing Girardi does well with the bullpen is not overuse them. Other than that he is pretty standard and has very conventional rules about when to use pitchers.

  69. Rich in NJ April 24th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Left unsaid, because we may have all taken his predictable greatness for granted at times, is that Mo’s presence has made looking smart at managing a pen a lot easier than it otherwise would.

  70. Bo knows April 24th, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Girardi has a long term track record with BPs. Normally things becomes conventions because they work. Last year he was unconventional enough to use both sidewinders, got maximum use from them. This year their shelf life expired. It’s called the “Towers Formula”.

  71. JobaTipsHisCap April 24th, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Jeter is still interested in all star game?

  72. Shame Spencer April 24th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    I sort of wish we could have a show about the Yankees with all the Yankees being muppets.

    How do the Yankees manage the roster as guys return? Francisco is gone whomever comes back first, and Boesch gets demoted when the other of Granderson/Teixeira returns. Overbay needs to be kept as long as possible in case Tex breaks down – so does he stay until Jeter returns?

    Wish I didn’t have a broken hand, but wouldn’t trade it for an RBI that helped lead to an important @astros W. Praying for speedy recovery.

    Rich in NJ, “Deus ex machine” and Mo?

    Mo’s perfection? But isn’t the concept that when man can not resolve issues the “machine” comes down and does.

    While I believe that is exactly where humanity is heading especially given computer singularity is more near term than far, humans can never be “perfect”. Perfection is an invention of the mind but unattainable by man or machine since there is no known standard.

    Machines if they decide humans are bothersome and not worth having around subsequently eliminating them are not achieving perfection only eliminating a species which humans have been doing for eons!

    Enjoy your posts, direct with little floss and gloss! ;)

    Hey Shame and Rich. Not much Rich, just waiting for the game tonight. watching the Markets for now. Not much doing there. Raining day here, mid 50′s.

    BTW way I’d like to see Adams get his chance. Francisco has bombed but they are on the hook for his salary so I guess they want to make sure he’s got nothing!

    Blue Jays and Orioles in extra innings. Go Jays!

    Hi comet!

    Sternberg thinks revenue sharing money isn’t enough to level the playing field in MLB.

    He thinks lower revenue teams deserve higher draft picks in addition to the revenue money because they get penalized for being good.

    This “everyone who plays little league should get a trophy” philosophy in MLB is getting ridiculous.

    Drive-by to say that the rumor on EEI is that Aceves is going to be DFA. Highly disappointed if that’s the case.. :) They really did go on and on though about what a miserable and nasty person he is. So I guess that “rumor” that we’d been hearing may indeed be fact. They said that after last night’s game he threw everyone under the bus but himself, and that includes the umpires by name.

    GO YANKS!!!

    Later.

    ——————-

    Creates way too much parity… it’s frustrating.

    Looks like Youk will be out again tonight.

    @eboland11

    Tonight’s lineup: Gardner 8 ichiro 7 cano 4 hafner dh Cervelli 2 Overbay 3 Nunez 6 boesch 9 nix 5 Pettitte 1

    When Youk returns, keep him at 1B.

    Tonight’s @Yankees lineup (6pm on YES): Gardner 8, Ichiro 7,Cano 4, Hafner DH ,Cervelli 2, Overbay 3, Nunez 6, Boesch 9, Nix 5,
    __

    This is better, though i would still like to see Nunez bat 2nd. Other than that and short of bringing up Adams, this is as good as it can get, minus Wells who is getting the day off….

    I would have started Boesch in LF last night and DH’d Wells so he didnt have to sit today.

    **************************
    Francisco has to be the first to go, no doubt. The trick is keeping Overbay around incase Tex gets hurt again. I don’t think Boesch is going anmywhere as that would leave us with absolutely no bench. I would guess, Warren or Phelps would go down, get stretched out and we go a pitcher shy.

    Toronto beats Baltimore 6-5! Chance to pick up a game on the Orioles and Rays tonight.
