Yankees 1B Teixeira leaves game

Published:

TORONTO (AP) -- New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left Friday's game against the Blue Jays in the bottom of the second inning after suffering an apparent injury while trying to field a ground ball.

Teixeira was escorted off the field by Yankees trainer Steve Donohue after he tried to make a play on a foul grounder by Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera.

Kelly Johnson moved from second base to first and Brian Roberts came in to play second.

Teixeira was limited to 15 games last season because of a right wrist injury suffered at the World Baseball Classic. He entered play Friday hitting .182 with no home runs and one RBI through three games.
