Could Texiera Be Out For the Season?
Mark Texiera, who missed ten games because of a calf injury, re-aggravated the calf Saturday and might be lost for the season.
Texiera, who was hurt hustling to first base to try to beat a game ending double play, will miss at least the next four games, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi fears his first baseman could be out even longer.
Nick Swisher will move to first base in Texiera’s absence.
Texiera easily beat the throw to first with a headfirst slide, but was called out. After the game, Texiera questioned the umpires’ integrity and said he expects to be fined for his comments.
