Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long said what other people were thinking on Saturday. General manager Brian Cashman would prefer if he hadn’t.
Long said Saturday that he wasn’t sure Mark Teixeira’s wrist “has been right” since the slugger came off the disabled list on May 31. That drew the ire of Cashman, who didn’t like that his hitting coach came out and said such to a group of reporters.
“It’s alarming in the fact that K-Long would say that to the group of the reporters, but he never said that prior to that,” Cashman told reporters Monday. “This is a lot of times how things work out when things go bad, things get said. If K-Long felt that way he should have been saying that from Day 1, but we never heard that from K-Long.”
Perhaps Long should have remained tight-lipped, as that’s clearly what his boss wanted. Long’s assessment doesn’t sound far-fetched at all, though, as Teixeira is hitting just .151 in 15 games, and there’s a chance that the first baseman could be headed back to
BEST OF MAXIM
I had to laugh to keep from cringing when my Red Sox friend Johnny pointed out to me Brian Cashman's latest pontificating on the state of the Yankees. Specifically, my friend cited Cashman telling the media yesterday this shocking news about Kevin Youkilis: that "back issues usually don’t get better." Gee, you think? Next thing you know, Cash will figure out that...
Mark Teixeira is back on the 15-day disabled list with an aching right wrist, the latest injury setback for the depleted New York Yankees.
The team made the move Tuesday before playing the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The New York Yankees had to get active on the trade and free
agent markets earlier than expected this season, as spring training injuries
caused the team to make multiple transactions before the regular season even
began. General manager Brian Cashman told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he doesn’t
expect that level of busyness to change with the summer trade season approaching...
Slumping Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira could be sidelined a while longer because of his ailing right wrist.
"I haven't done anything, but I'm leaning toward the disabled list," New York general manager Brian Cashman said Monday on a conference call.

It seems as if every time the Yankees gain someone back from the disabled list, another player is moved onto it. Here are a few updates on the injured:
Mark Teixeira: Although Joe Girardi said that Mark Teixeira will need at least a week to rest his wrist, GM Brian Cashman may want to give him a few weeks. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger, Cashman is leaning...

Another one bites the dust. And, another one.After Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis returned to the DL yesterday, I began to wonder if the end is near for the New York Yankees. Injury-wise, they have had setback after setback. It is as if they are climbing up a greased pole. Could the grease finally be getting the best of them?Youkilis obviously has not worked out for the Yankees...

When plan A fails there is always plan B….right?
How does this relate to the current state of the New York Yankees?
Well, I think it is about time for Yankees to look beyond their All-Star disabled list (DL).
The hope that Jeter, A-Rod, Granderson, Youkilis, and Teixeira will ever be healthy enough to play at the level expected...
Just when you think it can’t get any worse in the Bronx. It does. News today from the New York Yankees includes Mark Teixeira’s wrist not recovering and needing to go back on the disabled list. And Kevin Youkilis is facing surgery for a herniated disk and is probably lost for 3 months, if not the season.
This, of course, with Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez still sidelined...

Wrist injuries to power hitters are nothing to be trifled with, especially for a player entering his mid-30s...
Happy Father’s Day!
The Yankees look to avoid yet another sweep this afternoon when they play the Angels. They will try and do so without Mark Teixeira, who was sent back to New York early to get his wrist examined. Teix re-aggrivated it yesterday and was removed from the game, obviously not good news for the team. Probably the best pitching matchup of the weekend, CC Sabathia...
