The Yankees are sending Teixeira on a rehab assignment but not the kind we are accustomed to seeing. With the Triple-A season wrapped up, Tex will head to Tampa to participate in instructional league games. The two-time All-Star has not played since aggravating his strained left calf on September 8, just 11 days after the initial injury. However I still think he is at least a week away from returning to the New York lineup. Teixeira admitted that the area was still swollen and sore as early as Thursday of last week, suggesting the strain is not fully healed. After the last setback it sounds like the Yankees will be especially cautious this second time around, even with the Orioles breathing down their necks in the standings. If you are playing in weekly leagues start looking for a replacement.
