Mark Teixeira Watch: No Structural Damage to Wrist

UPDATE: Teixeira does not have any structural damage to the wrist which is the best news he, the Yankees and fantasy owners could hear.  However, it is still possible that the pain is severe enough to warrant a DL stint.  More to follow.

In last nights loss to the Orioles, Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira dove for a ball and tried to shake it off..  He was removed from the game and there was no news on his status until Manager Joe Girardi had his post game press conference.  It would be a HUGE blow to the Yankees if they lost Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira in the same week.  Luckily for the Yankees though, they both got hurt BEFORE the trade deadline.
