CLEVELAND (AP) - Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said he expects to be cleared to begin swinging the bat as he recovers from a wrist injury.
Teixeira, one of four New York stars on the disabled list, has been sidelined since early March with a torn sheath in his right wrist. Before the Yankees concluded their rain-shortened series with the Indians, Teixeira said he will be examined Friday in New York by Yankees hand and wrist specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser. Teixeira expects to take ``dry swings'' before the series opener against Baltimore.
Teixeira said he is ``getting better every day. There's no pain. I could not be happier with the progress.''
Teixeira, who turned 33 Thursday, said rehab program is on schedule. The two-time All-Star expects to progress from dry swings to fungo bats to soft tosses in the next week.
