Teixeira was removed from Sunday's spring training game following suffering a knee contusion after being hit by pitch, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Teixeira was immediately taken out of the game and appeared to be limping but was seen later walking normally and reported feeling fine. It appears as though he avoided any serious setback, but consider him day-to-day for the time being as the club may elect to hold him out for precautionary reasons.

Teixeira went 0-for-3, but drove in his first run of the spring in Saturday's Grapefruit League win against the Tigers.

It hasn't been a great spring for Teixeira as he's just 3-for-18 with no extra base hits in seven Grapefruit League appearances. He's still the go-to guy at first base for the Yankees, though given the team's willingness to try Alex Rodriguez out at first, the offseason acquisition of Garrett Jones, and his own personal injury history -- he's played in fewer than 125 games each of the last three seasons -- he could see more days off or at DH than in the past few years.

Teixeira is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Teixeira did not start the last two games and appeared to be shut down for the season, but he will get the start at first base in the Yankees' season finale. Teixeira will bat cleanup against Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz.

Teixeira is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, according to Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York.

It was reported Thursday that Teixeira would likely be shut down for the season, and it appears that is the case, as he has not played since. Teixeira has an outside shot to play in Sunday's season finale given that he has not officially been ruled out, but it seems likely that his season is over.

Teixeira is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday, CSN Northeast's Maureen Mullen reports.

It was reported Thursday that he may be shut down for the season, and so far, that seems to be the case. Those in single-season leagues would be wise to look for production elsewhere this weekend. Francisco Cervelli will start at first Friday.

Teixeira (wrist) will likely be shut down for the last four games of the season, the NY Post reports.

Teixeira said he still wants to play, but with the Yankees officially eliminated from the playoffs, manager Joe Girardi is leaning toward playing it safe. The first baseman has been hampered by injuries all season long, and received his third cortisone shot of the year last week. He has still been able to launch 22 homers, but has seen his batting average drop to just .219.

Teixeira (wrist) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Teixeira will return to action after sitting out the last couple games. It's not clear how much he will be limited by the sore wrist during the season's final week, but he will man first base and bat fifth Tuesday night.

Teixeira (wrist) had another cortisone shot (his third of the season) and hopes to play Tuesday, YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.

He's out of the lineup again Monday, but the hope is that this latest shot will allow him to contribute in the last handful of games in 2014. Obviously a wrist injury is not ideal for a power hitter, so it's a testament to Teixeira's ability that he has still managed 21 home runs in 119 games.

Teixeira (wrist) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

Teixeira is again dealing with wrist soreness, so he will be held out Sunday. He said Saturday that he wants to continue playing, but with the Yankees out of the playoff hunt, it would not be a surprise if the club decides to shut him down early.

Teixeira intends to play through his wrist injury with the help of cortisone injections, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Teixeira was forced to leave Saturday's game prematurely with a sore right wrist. He's been dealing with this injury for almost a week and will require his third cortisone injection during that time span if the trainers ultimately allow it. Despite Teixeira's desire to play, his status will still be in question for the final stretch of the season.
