Latest Update Teixeira out Tuesday due to discomfort in wrist Tue Sep, 16, 05:01 PM
Is a quality switch-hitter and Gold Glove-caliber first baseman. Boasts the ability to hit for both power and contact when he's at his best. Also knows how to take a walk.
Flaws: : Injuries have started to creep into the picture here, as he appears to be in decline. Can be a streaky hitter. Like most switch-hitters, has more power from one side (left).
He has been able to play despite the pain of his surgically repaired wrist, but is going to sit this game out on Tuesday. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Teixeira will get the 2nd game of the twin bill off. Expect him to be available to pinch-hit if necessary as no injury has been made public. Teixeira should be penciled in the starting line up tomorrow.Analyst: Colby Conway
Big Tex seems to always have an injury issue, but he's still managed to go deep 21 times. Obviously he is a detriment to your average, but you have to keep plugging him into your lineup everyday, especially if you need power.Analyst: David Kerr
Teixeira had been dealing with some hamstring tightness over the last few days, but things have subsided enough that he can get back onto the field. He's back at first base and batting fourth in the order.Analyst: Howard Bender
