Teixeira has bruised right knee; day-to-day
BOSTON – Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left Thursday’s game against the Red Sox with a bruised right knee and is considered day-to-day.
Teixeira was hobbled in the sixth inning when he was hit by an 83 mph cutter from Boston reliever Alfredo Aceves.
Teixeira was seen on the field by assistant athletic trainer Steve Donohue and manager Joe Girardi, but stayed in the game to run the bases.
The Yankees made a change to remove Teixeira from the game before the home half of the seventh inning, with Nick Swisher substituting at first base.
