Yankees' Teixeira Still A Week From Returning


Mark Teixeira says his surgically repaired right wrist is holding up well, but dont look for the first baseman to play in an exhibition game until March 3 at the earliest.

Teixeira, who didnt swing at any of Jim Millers batting practice pitches by design Thursday at George M. Steinbrenner Field, said he wasnt sure when he would face live batting practice pitches.

Probably a week to 10 days, said Teixeira, who continues to hit off a batting tee and take batting practice off coaches.
