Teixeira returned Saturday night from a 10-day absence with a strained left calf, then hurt himself on the final play of New York’s 5-4 loss to Baltimore.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi summed up Teixiera’s status Sunday by saying, “No, I don’t think he’ll be a player for us. I’d be surprised, but we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Girardi says Teixeira will have an MRI on Monday.
The injury occurred when Teixeira ran to first base, trying to beat out a double-play grounder. He finished the sprint with a headfirst slide.
Girardi said, “I think that’s when he really felt it.”
