The sad reality of Mark Teixeira is, you just don't know if the guy will be truly very be healthy again.  With his whole Yankee career continually being hurt, you gotta wonder if rushing back to play is actually a good idea. I mean, look, we now have Ike Davis and Rob Refsnyder filling in when Davis needs a rest at 1st.  So, why rush Mark, we're good.  Do we REALLY need Tex back?  I'm kind of over the guy.

Bryan Hoch reported that Tex could be activated if everything goes smooth with him. After all, apparently he's ahead of schedule, didn't do surgery and team physicians feel like he could be activated against the Twins during our home series with them. ESPN says that Tex is looking to return by June 24th.  Bottom line, as I've stated in #TEXDONE2016, meh. I don't care much anymore.

ESPN writes: "Injured first baseman Mark Teixeira believes he can return to the New York Yankees' lineup in a little more than a week, because his knee is healing so well.

A surprised Teixeira said that shots, which included cortisone, have made the articular cartilage tear in his right knee feel stronger and looser. Teixeira plans on playing in minor league rehab games at Double-A Trenton on Tuesday and Wednesday before returning to the Yankees' lineup on June 24 at home against the Minnesota Twins."

I know. It seems like I'm bashing the guy.  I'm just not happy with his career as a Yankee, and while he is trying to impress the Yankees and us fans by coming back, because suddenly, his "knee feels great", I just have to ask...why rush at this point? Honestly.
