The New York Yankees offense could be getting a big boost soon. First baseman Mark Teixeira expects to be cleared as early as Friday to start swinging the bat as soon as Friday. The Yankees slugger has been out of the lineup after suffering a wrist injury in the World Baseball Classic last month. This news is the latest in a sting of good news for the Yankees offense the team received this week. New York has been playing without Teixeira as well as outfielder Curtis Granderson and team captain Derek Jeter. Positive news was learned about the later two as well this week. Jeter has resumed hitting at the Yankees facility in Tampa, Floirda this week. Jeter was sidelined last month after experiencing soreness in his left ankle, the ankle he broke at the end of the 2012 season. Granderson is recovering from a broken forearm he suffered in spring training and was able to remove a brace on his arm while able to resume throwing on Thursday. Teixeira will visit with a Yankees specialist on Friday when the team returns home and the fist baseman expects to be cleared by the doctor to start hitting. “I’m confident the doctor will let me take swings tomorrow. I feel great and I’m getting better every day. There’s no pain. I could not be happier with the progress,” Teixeira told reporters in Cleveland on Thursday evening.

When the Retrieval Empire last winter inked Sergeant Youkilis to a one-year deal, a few writers dusted off the old punch line about him being the "Greek God of Walks." OK, fine.
