Teixeira went 1-for-3 with a walk-off grand slam in a 5-3 victory over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It might not have any lasting impact on the playoff standings, but this one was for the ages. Teixeira is in his final week of professional baseball, and with the bases loaded and New York down two runs, Teixeira belted one 409 feet to win the game. It was his second straight game with a homer and third since Sept. 20. He is hitting .205, but Teixeira has 15 bombs on the year.

Teixeira (neck) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Chad Jennings of LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was held out of action Saturday due to soreness in his neck, though he was able to enter late in the game as a defensive replacement. He'll get the start at first base Sunday and bat fifth in the order against Toronto right-hander Marco Estrada.

Teixeira was held out of Saturday's lineup with neck soreness, LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Teixeira also missed Friday's tilt with the lingering issue, but he was able to enter Saturday's game as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning. Heading into the final week of his major league career, the Yankees will likely try to get the 36-year-old back into the lineup a few times before he hangs it up, but it's possible they'll play it cautiously and give the soreness in his neck an extra day or two to completely subside.

Teixeira went 2-for-3 with a grand slam, two walks and two runs overall in Friday's 7-5 victory over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger vaulted back over the Mendoza Line with his banner night, which was highlighted by his 390-foot shot to right center that plated Rob Refsnyder, Gary Sanchez and Starlin Castro in the fourth and extended the Yankees' lead to 7-2 at the time. The pair of hits Friday were Teixeira's first of September after starting off the month with an 0-for-8 stretch over the first three games in which he registered an at-bat.

Teixeira (neck) is in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Teixeira has been bothered by a sore neck for the last several days, but he entered late in Tuesday's game as pinch hitter, so the ailment doesn't look to be anything overly serious, and his presence in the lineup Wednesday would seem to confirm that. The veteran will get the nod at first base and bat fifth in the order against the Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman.

Teixeira (neck) came into Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays as a defensive replacement.

EDGE Analysis

A sore neck has held the first baseman out of the lineup for the past three days, but the ailment is apparently not severe enough to keep him off the field entirely. Whether it's the injury or just sitting in favor of Tyler Austin -- who smacked a two run home run Tuesday -- Teixeira could continue to ride the bench, but it does appear as though he's nearing a recovery.

Teixeira (neck) is out of the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Yankees manager Joe Girardi will give Teixeira a second straight day off to recover from the sore neck, an injury that had plagued him early last week. It's not believed that his latest recurrence of the injury is especially serious, so we could still see Teixeira play at some point during the series with the Jays. In the meantime, Tyler Austin will serve as the Yankees' primary first baseman.

Updating a previous report, Teixeira was held out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles due to a sore neck, Chad Jennings of The Journal News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees' matchup with a left-hander in Wade Miley along with the early start time for Sunday's game may have contributed to manager Joe Girardi's decision to hold out Teixeira, but the veteran is evidently not completely over the neck issues that plagued him earlier last week. It's not expected that he's dealing with a setback that's significant in nature, however, so the expectation is that Teixeira will return to the lineup during the team's upcoming series with the Blue Jays.
