Pregame notes: “99 percent sure that this is inflammation”

Mark Teixeira

When the Yankees return to New York for Thursday’s off day, Mark Teixeira is going to visit the doctor who performed last year’s wrist surgery. Teixeira said he expects to have an ultrasound test to make sure the tendon is not damaged, but the expectation right now is that he’s simply dealing with some inflammation that comes naturally with the healing process.

“(The doctor) is 99 percent sure that this is inflammation from overuse and just completely expected,” Teixeira said. “He was surprised I haven’t had more flare ups. It’s been pretty good all season.”

Teixeira did not swing a bat yesterday or today. He said yesterday’s day off did some good, and he felt better this morning. He’s hoping to play tomorrow, but he acknowledges that he might take another day off which — coupled with the off day — would give him four full days of rest.

The trick is knowing when to sit out going forward. Teixeira said his wrist began bothering him Wednesday against the Cubs, but Joe Girardi said Teixeira never mentioned anything until Friday. And it wasn’t until Monday that Teixeira indicated he needed a day off. The plan is to take some precautionary days off when the pain is slight and playable. Teixeira said he hopes that taking a day here and there might keep him from another of these two- or three-day stretches when he can’t play.

“It’s tough taking days off when you feel good,” Teixeira said. “Maybe that day when it’s a little more sore than it usually is, or a little more stiffer than it usually is, be smart about it and think, maybe this is my body telling me this is the day. But when you’re feeling good and you’re getting hits and you’re able to take your full round of batting practice, it’s tough to say, ‘This is the day I’m going to take off.’ That’s not how we’re built.”

Carlos Beltran• Good news on Carlos Beltran today. He got through his scheduled dry swings with a regular bat and felt fine afterward. He will take tomorrow off before swinging again on Thursday. Girardi said Beltran could do some light tee and toss that day. “He was extremely excited today,” Girardi said.

• Also good news on Michael Pineda who threw 28 pitches in extended spring training and felt fine afterward. Pineda will be stretched out to 50 pitches on Sunday in an intrasquad game. “We want to be able to control his innings to where there are no innings that are too long,” Girardi said. “Build him up some more, get him somewhere between 50-60 pitches, hopefully.”

• If Pineda can get up to 50 pitches next time out, it would seem he might be able to get away with just one rehab start (maybe two) before being fairly stretched out. “Let’s just go through this one and see where we end up,” Girardi said. “Then we’ll probably have a rehab and we’ll see where we’re at.”

• Still more good news on Shawn Kelley who felt fine after playing catch yesterday and was able to play catch again today. He did long toss today and will do more long toss, plus some flat ground pitching, tomorrow.

• Derek Jeter has played a lot lately, and it sounds like he’ll probably play tomorrow leading up to an off day on Thursday. “I’m checking with him every day,” Girardi said. “I checked with him before yesterday’s game, checked at 12 o’clock today with him. He said he feels good. I gave him a DH day in that, even though we had a day game and there’s usually a little more time between a day game and a night game, it didn’t really work out that way yesterday. But he said it was good.”

• Dellin Betances is not available tonight. Girardi said he’ll check with Dave Robertson to see how he feels.

• No obvious change in David Phelps’ demeanor when he walked in the Yankees clubhouse this afternoon. He was sitting at his locker chatting with Adam Warren as usual. Not sure how he’ll feel when he gets on the mound in front of so many friends and family. “You try to watch early, make sure he’s controlling his emotions,” Girardi said. “Sometimes it’s hard to come and play at home if you haven’t done it. It’s probably the first time he’s ever done it, in a sense. I’ll watch closely early on.”
