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. Teixeira missed the first 53 games of the season because of an injury to his wrist. The switch-hitting first baseman got off to an encouraging start when he returned but has slumped to a .151 average with three home runs and 12 RBIs in 53 at-bats. He left the team during its recent West Coast trip, went back to New York and received a cortisone shot Sunday. General manager Brian Cashman said Monday that Teixeira probably would be sidelined at least a week, and he was leaning toward putting the slugger on the DL.
