First baseman Mark Teixeira has been put on the d.l. by the Yankees with a hamstring injury

New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has been placed on the 15 day disabled list with a hamstring strain, per reports from baseball writers on Twitter.  Teixeira strained him hamstring while fielding a foul ball in yesterday's game.

This is another blow to the Yankees, who were hoping to have a solid bounceback season from Teixeira to help bolster their offense.  Their offense will now consist of Kelly Johnson, Brian Roberts, Derek Jeter and Yangervis Solarte.

Teixeira played in only 15 games last season while battling wrist problems.  He had put up a .250/.308/.250 line through 13 plate appearances this year before his injury.

The Yankees are paying Teixeira $22.5 million this year, and have him on the books at $22.5 million per year for 2015 and 2016, as well, as part of an 8 year, $180 million contract he signed prior to the 2009 season.  Teixeira also has a full no-trade clause as part of his deal.
