TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he expects to play in a minor-league game Wednesday with Double-A Trenton.

It will be his first game since hurting his right wrist in early March while preparing with the U.S. team for the World Baseball Classic.

Manager Joe Girardi watched while the All-Star took part in an extensive simulated game with infielder Kevin Youkilis at the Yankees’ minor-league complex on Friday. Youkilis is sidelined with a sore back.

Teixeira may be ready to rejoin the Yankees in early June. Youkilis looks to start a minor-league rehab assignment soon.

Reliever Joba Chamberlain, sidelined by a right oblique strain, says he’s scheduled to throw two innings out of the bullpen Saturday in his second extended spring training game.
