Mark Teixeira, who has been out all year with a right wrist injury, took at-bats down in Tampa on Monday, making a return in June a stronger possiblity. Teixiera tweeted that he went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.
Felt good to get my first AB's since March. 1-2 with a double and a walk, I'll take it. #Yankees in first place, I'll take that too!

Before Monday, Teixeira had only taken batting practice. Teixeira will need a good amount of rehab at-bats from both the right and the left side, but he could come back in the next few weeks.
