Mark Teixeira leaves game with hamstring injury

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

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.

There isn't any word yet on the severity of the strain or the expected time table, though. We'll keep you posted.
