Mark Teixeira clubbed a solo-home run in four at-bats of Sunday's loss to the Red Sox at home.
Teixeira's 7.1 HR% is third in MLB behind only White Sox 1B Jose Abreu and Orioles slugger Nelson Cruz. The home run was Teix's fourth in his last eight games and 15th in just 210 at-bats this year. As usual the average sucks (.243), but he is back to producing enough in the power, run producing categories to more than make up for the poor average.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tyson Chandler will not play Sunday.
Chandler sat out on Wednesday and only played four minutes on Friday. Alex Len has seen some extra minutes at center in Chandler's absence, but he's hasn't played more than 16 minutes in either game. Phoenix is likely to go with a mix of forwards for more of a small ball look without Chandler. Analysis: Brett Talley
