It was easily overshadowed about 12 hours later, but late Tuesday night, Mark Teixiera tweeted a pretty gross picture of his wrist, along with a pretty positive message about his recovery:

Last week, Teixeira spoke to YES Network about his offseason rehab program. As part of the interview, Teixeira was pretty candid about the status of his surgically repaired wrist and the steps he’s going through to get back to 100 percent. He said that he’s still in the process of getting the wrist looser and stronger heading into spring training.
“Yeah, I’m a little anxious about how exactly I’m going to feel,” Teixeira said. “But I know that as long as I’m doing what I’m told, doing what I’m supposed to be doing, that I should be fine.”
Last night’s tweet seems to be Teixeira’s response to any sort of concern that interview might have caused. Here’s a video clip of Teixeira speaking to Jack Curry on YES:
