Teixeira went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI overall in Friday's 14-4 victory over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger has endured a forgettable season, but Friday was a highlight. Teixeira erased an early 1-0 lead with a mammoth 430-foot blast to right center in the first that plated Gary Sanchez, and brought him home again in the second with a run-scoring single. The production brought the veteran's average over the Mendoza Line for the first time since Aug. 12 and extended his modest hitting streak to three games.

Teixeira is not in the lineup Friday against the Angels, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Teixeira has had an incredibly disappointing season, and his performance in recent games hasn't been an exception. Over his last seven games, Teixeira has gone 2-for-13, bringing his batting average down to just .196 for the season. Tyler Austin will start at first base and bat eighth over Teixeira.

Teixeira is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight day, Teixeira will give way at first base to the newly-promoted Tyler Austin, who homered Saturday in his MLB debut. Like Alex Rodriguez before him, Teixeira looks to be the next underperforming veteran in line for a significantly reduction in at-bats as the Yankees transition to a youth movement. Look for Austin to dominate the playing time at first base so long as he hits reasonably well enough.

Teixeira (shin) is going to retire at the end of this season, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

EDGE Analysis

His contract is up at the end of 2016, and he is comfortable calling it quits after a 14-year career. He eclipsed the 400 home run mark earlier this season and his career batting average currently sits at .269. Teixeira will be remembered as one of the premier power hitters of the mid-to-late 2000s. He is currently day-to-day after getting hit by a pitch on the shin. Greg Bird figures to be the Yankees' Opening Day first baseman in 2017.

Teixeira is expected to have precautionary X-Rays on his shin, Pete Caldera of Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Teixeira was hit in the shin by a pitch in Wednesday's game and while he's not worried it's a long-term issue, he is "pretty sore" and will go in for X-Rays to make sure there's no structural damage. Teixeira is being replaced by Rob Refsnyder in the lineup Thursday as the 39-year-old seeks a medical diagnosis.

EDGE Analysis

Teixeira has seen playing time in 14 consecutive games but will get a night off Thursday as Rob Refsnyder replaces him at first and bats eighth. Teixeira's average has't been above .200 since late May but he is slashing .333/.484/.542 over his last eight games.

Teixeira got on base all four times up Wednesday against the Mets -- he hit a three-run homer, drew two walks, was hit by a pitch and scored three times.

EDGE Analysis

A 31-homer man last year, it's taken Teixeira into early August just to crack double digits in 2016. He's drawn five walks in the last two games and, for what it's worth, the aging slugger's average is up to its highest point -- a miserable .198 -- since the middle of May.

Teixeira is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Wallace Matthews of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Joe Girardi will give Teixeira a rest after the veteran logged seven consecutive starts at first base. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Rob Refsnyder, who should have a favorable matchup as a right-handed hitter against Rays rookie lefty Blake Snell.
