Mark Teixeira said he’s not feeling optimistic at the moment. Teixeira hurt his right hamstring during the second inning, and although he won’t undergo an MRI until Monday, Joe Girardi left open the possibility of the Yankees making a move before the end of the weekend. Sounds entirely possible — if not probable — that Teixeira will be on the disabled list by tomorrow.
The initial diagnosis of a strain is based largely on Teixeira’s symptoms, not an actual test. The Yankees won’t have a full diagnosis until after the weekend.
