The New York Yankees are facing one of the most daunting seasons in recent years. New York has a bloated roaster with huge contracts, an aging team and mounting injuries with Opening Day just two weeks away. The news got worse for the Yankees on Sunday when 1B Mark Teixeira revealed to reporters that he could miss up to two months of the regular season with a wrist injury that he hopes doesn’t require surgery. The injuries have been mounting for the Yankees and the franchise can’t seem to get a break. Teixeira, who played in the World Baseball Classic, suffered a wrist injury and it’s now known that he has a partially torn tendon sheath in his right wrist. The injury occurred while he was hitting a ball off a practice tee during warmups for the world contest but does not blame his participation in the tournament for his injury. “It has nothing to do with the WBC. It would be one thing if we weren’t playing games. We started playing games on February 23rd. February 23rd, think about it.” He continued to tell reporters that it was a freak injury he sustained and it could have happened had he been in Spring Training just as easily. The underlying issue is that the injury has happened and the Yankees are going to have to find a way to overcome his loss for at least two months. New York did get a little bit of good news over the weekend. SP C.C. Sabathia pitched five innings and 64 pitches against the Miami Marlins in his first action of the season. Despite a lack of velocity on his pitches, he told reporters that he felt good and was confident that he’d be the Opening Day starter for the Yankees. New York has dealt with injuries this spring to Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Phil Hughes, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera. It could be a rough start to the regular season for the Yankees this season.     The post New York Yankees: Mark Teixeira could miss two months with wrist injury appeared first on Hardball Chat Baseball Blog.
