INJURY UPDATE: Mark Teixeira has been scratched from the Team USA exhibition game due to a sore forearm. Also, Robinson Cano was struck by a foul ball while standing at third base. Cano waved off trainers and is expected to be okay.
NEWS AND UPDATES:
– Mark Teixeira went in for x-rays and his diagnosis is that he has a strained forearm. He said he felt something in his arm while taking swings in the cage. Teixeira’s injury means he’s out of the World Baseball Classic and will be out of the Yankee lineup between a week and ten days.
– The Yankees made more cuts today in camp: Cito Culver, Ron Segedin, Tyler Austin, Gary Sanchez, Francisco Arcia and Kyle Higashioka.
– Mariano Rivera could be in a Yankees game tomorrow according to Joe Girardi. He didn’t sound entirely committed, but it seemed like he was leaning towards yes.
