New York Yankees News: Mark Teixeira’s Season Is Officially Over


Welp, if there was any hope that Mark Teixeira would return for the post-season, you can finally lay it to rest.

According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the latest medical tests on Teixeira’s leg indicate that he now has a fracture, which will effectively end his season:

According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, the estimated recovery time on Tex’s injury is three months before he can resume baseball activity:

Teixeira last appeared on August 26th against the Houston Astros in a pinch-hit appearance when he was trying to come back from a said ‘bone-bruise.’

He’ll end the 2015 season with .255 batting average along with 31 home runs and a 79 RBI.

For now, it looks as if 22-year old Gregory Bird will finish out the season as the Yankees every-day first baseman. In 24 games, Bird is slashing .241/.319/.458 with five home runs and 17 RBI.

This news was broke just hours before the Yankees are set to begin a critical four game set against the Toronto Blue Jays, who are 1.5 games up on the Yankees atop the A.L. East.
