CHICAGO (AP) - First baseman Mark Teixeira left the New York Yankees’ game against the Chicago White Sox after two innings Saturday because of a bruised right thumb.

Teixeira fielded Gordon Beckham’s routine grounder and slowly stepped on first base for the final out of the second. Curtis Granderson batted for Teixeira in the top of the third.

Teixeira, who went 0 for 2, came into the game hitting .258 with 28 homers and 91 RBIs in 126 games.
