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 a stiff neck and hopes to be back Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Teixeira will be rested for Wednesday's game and is not in the lineup against the Marlins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Teixeira hadn't gotten a day off since May 29 against Oakland, playing in 14 consecutive games. He'll likely return to the lineup Thursday when the Yankees wrap up their two-game set with the Marlins in New York.

Teixeira managed just one hit Monday, but made it count, lifting his 18th home run of the season.

The first baseman is having a resurgent season in New York, hitting .256 with 18 home runs after hitting just .216 last year and missing almost all of 2013 with injury. Teixeira has been especially strong this month, hitting .318 with 13 RBI and four home runs.

Teixeira went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over Seattle.

That's the 16th homer of the year for Texy, and he's got the most modest of five-game hitting streaks going, with one hit in every game. He's also struck out in each of those games -- an unusual development for a guy who hasn't whiffed much this year. The RBI lifted his AL-leading total to 41.
