Mark Teixeira left tonight's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning with a right hamstring injury. The injury occurred while he was chasing after a ball in foul territory. On the plus side, the injury is completely unrelated to his wrist.
The right hamstring is the same one Teixeira strained in the 2010 ALCS. Then, NYY said it would take 6-8 weeks, but that was a Grade 2.— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) April 5, 2014
There isn't any word yet on the severity of the strain or the expected time table, though. We'll keep you posted.
