Teixeira placed on disabled list
The Yankees have placed Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Austin Romine has been called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Kelly Johnson will be the Yankees’ regular first baseman while Teixeira is out. Joe Girardi said that he could also use Dean Anna, Francisco Cervelli and Yangervis Solarte at first base as backups.
