KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) - Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was removed from the lineup shortly before Saturday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals because of a sore left wrist.

New York made the announcement about 45 minutes before game time. Teixeira is day to day. He was replaced at first by Nick Swisher. Replacing Swisher in left field was Johnny Damon, who was supposed to have the night off.

One of the Yankees’ marquee offseason acquisitions this year, Teixeira marked his 29th birthday on Saturday.
