PHILADELPHIA - NOVEMBER 02: Mark Teixeira #25 of the New York Yankees strikes out against pitcher Ryan Madson #46 of the Philadelphia Phillies to end Game Five of the 2009 MLB World Series at Citizens Bank Park on November 2, 2009 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Curtis Granderson returned to the lineup last night and went 0-for-3 with a run scored and a big walk in the Yankees’ seventh inning rally. His presence represented a somewhat return to normalcy in the lineup. Now, it seems as if first baseman Mark Teixeira will return soon. According to beat writer Bryan Hoch, Teixeira said yesterday that his “rehab is going great” and that Teixeira expects to be playing in big league games before June 1. When he returns, it will be very interesting to see what the team does with Lyle Overbay, who has gotten some big hits this season. The Yankees may end up having too many guys and not enough roster spots, meaning that Overbay would be the odd man out. Teixeira has been sidelined since spring training with a partially torn tendon sheath in his wrist. Should he continue to have no setbacks, his return before June 1 seems reasonable. Mark Teixeira said yesterday his rehab is going “great” and he expects to be playing in big league games before June 1st. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) May 15, 2013
