    Late last night, Mark Teixeira didn’t sound or look like a player who would be in the Yankees lineup today.

    Teixeira had his right hand in a compression wrap after leaving a 12-9 win over the White Sox early in the game with a bone bruise he suffered diving for a ball Friday night.

    Teixeira, who came into the day having hit .059 (1-for-17) with runners in scoring position over his previous 15 games, said his early hitting work was affected by the sore hand. So, too, was his batting practice.

    “I thought the adrenaline would kick in but I had nothing,” said Teixeira, who fouled out in the first. “I was swinging with one hand.”

    Manager Joe Girardi, who moved Nick Swisher from right field to first base, wasn’t sure if Teixeira will play today.

    I have a bad feeling about this one…sort of like David Adam’s sprained right ankle in May that turned out to be actually fractured at the end of July.

      Hopefully, they’ll let him rest instead of trying to force it.

      Let’s hope that’s a not a foolish thing to try. I’m thinking of a “Youk” type thing here.

      Or not too long ago with Rodriguez…
