Tex Leaves Game EarlyPosted: June 7, 2011
Update (11:20pm): Here’s a tweet that holds good news, but Girardi says there is a bone bruise so I say he’s out at least a day.
Update (8:25pm): Tex went for x-rays which came back negative. He is listed as day-to-day with a right knee contusion. Expect him to miss a few days, which is a real shame because he was heating up. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow. Joe Girardi might have to play Posada at first now for a few straight games. Maybe playing in the field gets him going offensively.
Original (7:35pm): In the first inning of tonight’s game, Mark Teixeira was hit on the knee cap with a Jon lester cutter and taken out of the game. He couldn’t walk off on his own power and weas helped by the trainer and Joe Girardi. I will update this post with more info.
