TAMPA, Fla. - Once a surgeon repaired the torn extensor carpi ulnaris retinaculum in Mark Teixeira's right wrist, the Yankees first baseman was optimistic. Doctors told Teixeira he would rest for four or five months and be 100 percent healed at six months - the same timetable offered for Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr, who underwent the surgery last week. "Hah," Teixeira said Sunday morning from his locker at George M. Steinbrenner Field. "No chance. No chance. " The 35-year-old slugger recalled the times after his July 1, 2013, surgery as some of the worst, a warning of what possibly lies ahead for Altherr, a young player the Phillies planned to learn more about in 2016.

NEW YORK - Derek Jeter has teased Mark Teixeira about his rigid regimen, about his robotic approach to the daily grind of baseball. Teixeira misses that grind, that routine. The frequent off days in the playoffs have taken Teixeira out of his comfort zone. It is showing. Teixeira, the top position-player free agent in 2008, is hitting .172 with 16 strikeouts and seven RBI in 14 playoff games. "It's tough to get into a rhythm," Teixeira said. He wasn't, he insisted, offering excuses.

It sounds as if Mark Teixeira won't be returning to the Los Angeles Angels. The Los Angeles Times, citing Angels vice president of communications Tim Mead, reported yesterday that the team was not pursuing the slugging free-agent first baseman anymore. Earlier in the day, ESPN.com, citing a source, reported the Angels had withdrawn their 8-year offer for Teixeira. That would leave the Red Sox, Yankees, Orioles and Nationals still pursuing Teixeira. The Angels acquired Teixeira in a trade with Atlanta before the July 31 deadline last season.
