mark-teixeira

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira took a big step toward a return on Monday when he went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk during a simulated game against minor leaguers. This is indeed a big step, but it's not one that signals that he's fine. First of all, this is not even an Extended Spring ...
