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.

Kenny Rogers left the Texas Rangers' clubhouse yesterday without saying whether he will participate in the All-Star Game. Still, one of his teammates expects to see the pitcher in Detroit. "I'm pretty sure he's going," Mark Teixeira, the AL's starting first baseman, said yesterday. "He made his own decision. He definitely wants to be there. " Rogers, 40, told team officials that he wasn't speaking to reporters, and he didn't comment when asked questions while walking out of the clubhouse.

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.

Kenny Rogers' immediate future will be determined by Major League Baseball, and the Texas Rangers expect their ace to be suspended for his angry outburst that sent a television cameraman to the hospital with minor injuries. Rangers owner Tom Hicks said baseball has jurisdiction because the incident occurred on the field. A decision on discipline is due today. Rogers was caught on videotape shoving two cameramen before Wednesday's game against the Angels. Larry Rodriguez, treated at a hospital, filed an assault report, said Arlington police, who are investigating.

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.

Rays pitcher Alex Cobb was released from a St. Petersburg, Fla., hospital on Sunday, one day after he was hit in the right ear by a line drive and taken off the field on a stretcher. The Rays said the 25-year-old will be placed on the seven-day concussion list, but gave no timetable for his return. On Sunday he tweeted that he "woke up with only a minor headache.

The Boston Red Sox made a slew of roster moves on Friday afternoon, putting outfielder Shane Victorino and third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the disabled list, activating catcher David Ross, pitcher Alfredo Aceves and infielder Jose Iglesias, and demoting Ryan Lavarnway. Victorino missed the last three games with a left hamstring strain, as manager John Farrell had been hoping to keep Victorino off the DL. His DL stint is retroactive to May 21. With a home series against the Phillies coming up on Monday, it looks as if Victorino won't make it into the lineup.

ST. LOUIS - On the eve of the World Series, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch celebrated 10 world titles, 18 pennants, and a century or more as a bona-fide baseball town by rolling out a fat special section under the theme, "Tradition.

And yet here the Rangers are in St. Louis, baseball mecca, only one win away from a championship. They come back from an embarrassing, record-setting loss to win two straight and take the Series lead.

Mariano Rivera struck out Adrian Gonzalez with the bases loaded for the final out and Russell Martin hit a go-ahead double in the seventh inning that sent the visiting New York Yankees past the Boston Red Sox, 4-2, last night, despite stranding 12 runners in the first six innings. The lack of clutch hitting cost A.J. Burnett a potential victory as he began September with a solid performance after a horrible August in which he was 1-2 with an 11.91 ERA in five starts. In this one, he gave up two runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings.
