Mark Teixeira's Salary Covered By WBC

David Waldstein of the New York Times has passed along some interesting information.

Back when Mark Teixeira initially injured his wrist it was learned that the WBC would pay part Mark's salary, due to an insurance policy set up for players hurt during the tournament. What I didn't know was that if the player re-aggravated the same injury and missed time, that insurance would again cover the player's salary.

That means that if Teixeira ends up having season-ending surgery, which is a strong possibility, then the Yankees could have around $12.5 million to use to improve this years' team (he earns approximately $140,000 a game). That could be huge for the Yankees.
