Teixeira went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a walk in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Athletics.

The AL RBI leader (61) crushed his 21st and 22nd home runs off Evan Scribner into the right field seats at Yankee Stadium. Teixeira now has the same number of home runs that he had all of last year, with 17 coming against right-handed pitching. While his .244 batting average isn't stellar, Teixeira's other counting stats have more than made up for it.

Teixeira provided plenty of punch, going 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the Yankees extra-innings win over Tampa Bay on Friday night.

He's hitting a modest .245, but he has now smashed 20 home runs and driven in 58 so the Yankees and his fantasy owners should be more than pleased with his first half performance.

Teixeira went 3-for-5 with two RBI in his return to the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies.

He'd missed a pair of games due to some neck soreness, but seems to be feeling better and should return to being a fixture in the Yankees' lineup moving forward.

Teixeira (neck) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies.

Teixeira missed the last two contests due to a sore neck, but the cortisone shot he received Monday appears to have kicked in. He'll once again man first base, and will bat cleanup for the Yankees against the Phillies and southpaw Cole Hamels.

Teixeira (neck) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

This was to be expected, as Teixeira received a cortisone shot Monday to treat his ailing neck. It typically takes a few days for cortisone shots to take effect, but it sounds like Teixeira has a chance to return for Wednesday's series finale. Garrett Jones will get the start at first base and bat sixth Tuesday.

Teixeira (neck) had a cortisone shot Monday and may not play until Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The ailment bothered him last week and kept him out of Monday's lineup, but the cortisone shot should help Texy get back in the lineup soon. Garrett Jones started at first base Monday and will probably do so again Tuesday.

Teixeira (neck) is out of the lineup Monday with a stiff neck, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Teixeira has missed a number of games this season with various ailments. This injury hasn't caused him to miss significant playing time thus far, but is something to watch moving forward as he missed last Wednesday's game with the same neck injury. Garrett Jones will step in at first base in his absence.

Teixeira missed Wednesday's game with neck stiffness, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious, as he's back in the lineup at first base. He'll bat fourth against Marlins' starter Mat Latos.

Teixeira missed Wednesday's game with a stiff neck and hopes to be back Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Teixeira was thought to have missed Wednesday's game for rest, but this seems to have just been precautionary. He should be ready for Thursday's game against the Marlins barring any setbacks.
