Mark Teixeira doubles in first game action since March
Mark Teixeira was in New York for one day last week, helping to escort Prince Harry around town before returning to continue working out in Tampa, Fla. But while he was in the city, Teixeira said that he is still optimistic that he’ll be playing big league games for the Yankees before the month of May is over.
Teixeira announced on Monday via Twitter that he has stepped into a batter’s box against live pitching – it sounds like it happened in Extended Spring Training, and Joe Girardi will hopefully be able to provide the details later today. In any event, it seems to be another step in the right direction.
