First baseman Mark Teixeira will be out of the Yankees' lineup until at least Monday, Joe Girardi told reporters before Saturday's game.
Teixeira received a cortisone shot for the neck spasms he's dealing with and is expected to be out for three days.
Teixeira was out of the lineup on Wednesday due to the neck spasms. He had been set to play but told the team his neck had locked up.
Dustin Ackley started in Teixeira's place on Wednesday, and manager Joe Girardi said that Austin Romine, Brian McCann, and Ronald Torreyes are behind him on the depth chart at first base,
Teixiera, 36, is hitting .195 with a .294 OBP and .282 SLG with three HR and 12 RBIs in 42 games this season.
