Mark Teixeira "definitely a possibility" for Sunday

After spending the entire offseason worried about his wrist and how it would affect his swing, Mark Teixeira couldn't have figured that a hamstring would prevent him from playing this year. With a dearth of infield options, the Yankees could use Teixeira in the lineup and the team should be getting him back as early as Sunday according to manager Joe Girardi: "Sunday...

What version of Mark Teixeira can the Yankees tolerate?

Mark Teixeira can return to the Yankees as early as Sunday, but return as what? He has fallen – physically and statistically – but to where?
