Mark Teixeira Progressing In Instructional League

Mark Teixeira is now officially on the fast track back to the majors and it started yesterday in the Instructional Leagues. Mark Teixeira took advantage of the wacky rules of the Instructs and got himself seven at bats and even played first base for an inning. He ran the bases at 75-80% and reported no injuries, stiffness, or problems whatsoever.

Today he is scheduled to play another five innings and Joe Girardi came out and said he would be available to be back with the team next week for the final series with Boston. This is great news for a team that has had less then stellar replacement for Teix since his injury.
