Update, 5:23 pm: Joe Girardi told reporters after the game that Teixeira will not play on Sunday or Monday because of the soreness in his right wrist, and that he'll be re-evaluated by doctors on Tuesday.

Update, 3:27 pm: The Yankees, as expected, announced that Teixeira has left the game with soreness in his right wrist. He's sat out four of the past five days, so you have to wonder how much longer this issue is going to drag on.

Original: Mark Teixeira has left in the 6th inning of Saturday's game against the Minnesota Twins, likely because of an injury. We don't yet know why Teixeira was taken out of the game, but we can assume that it has something to do with his right wrist, which has been bothering him for the past week.

Brian Roberts had been on deck to hit for Teixeira in the bottom of the 5th, but Teixeira played the next half-inning on defense, turning a double play, before heading to the clubhouse and leaving the game.

Teixeira has missed three straight games this past week before returning to the lineup on Friday night against the Twins. He was experiencing some tightness in his wrist on Monday, then saw a doctor on Thursday, who confirmed that it was just inflammation.
