Yanks’ Teixeira, Youkilis hitless in rehab game
General manager Brian Cashman said they’ll rejoin the Yankees on Friday against the Boston Red Sox unless there’s an unexpected setback. Both will play another game with the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Thursday night.
In seven innings, each went 0-for-2 with a walk in a 3-1 Trenton win against the Erie SeaWolves.
“We’re ready,” Teixiera said after the game. “I’ve been feeling good for weeks. I’m just feeling good about playing again.”
“We’ve got to get healthy,” Cashman said. “The important thing is that those guys are healthy.”
Plenty of Yankees still aren’t ready to play. Cashman revealed that outfielder Curtis Granderson had surgery Wednesday to have a pin inserted into his broken finger. He broke the knuckle on his left pinkie finger when hit by a pitch on Friday night against Tampa Bay. Granderson had played just over a week after returning from a broken arm in spring training.
“He was cutting his fingernails before the game and he cut one too close,” Cashman said. “He cracked a nail and it was bleeding. He was getting blood on the ball.” .
Otherwise, Cashman said Pineda’s rehab from shoulder surgery has been going well and should be put on a 30-day rehab schedule soon. He added shortstop Edgardo Nunez has been slow to recover from a rib-cage injury, and catcher Francisco Cervelli is still doing hand exercises. There is no firm timetable for either Derek Jeter (ankle) or Alex Rodriguez (hip) to return.
Against the SeaWolves, Youkilis flied out to shallow right in the first, fouled out to first base in the fourth and walked in the sixth, scoring on a home run by right fielder Tyler Austin.
He signed to a one-year contract in the offseason to fill in for Rodriguez as he recovers from a hip injury.
