Teixeira’s Pain Lingers; Rodriguez Close

[1]Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is still feeling pain in his damaged right wrist more than a week after receiving a cortisone shot intended to soothe the discomfort from a partially torn tendon sheath, again raising the possibility that Teixeira will need to undergo season-ending surgery.

GM Brian Cashman would not say specifically whether Teixeira would undergo surgery but acknowledged it has “always been a possibility.”

Also, Alex Rodriguez is moving closer to a return to the New York Yankees, but no date has been set for the third baseman to begin a rehabilitation assignment.

“He’s getting closer, there’s no doubt about it, but we don’t have a date for him to start playing games yet,” Cashman said. “It could be July 1. It could also be July 5, or maybe June 25.”
