June 4 1:15 PM PT2:15 PM MT3:15 PM CT4:15 PM ET16:15 ET20:15 GMT4:15 1:15 PM MST3:15 PM EST3:45 PM VEN0:15 UAE (+1)3:15 PM CT-Teixeira was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, and went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout against the Twins.
Analysis: Teixeira is 3 for 46 with 15 RBIs in his last 14 games.
June 3 9:49 AM PT10:49 AM MT11:49 AM CT12:49 PM ET12:49 ET16:49 GMT0:49 9:49 AM MST11:49 AM EST12:19 PM VEN20:49 UAE11:49 AM CT-Teixeira was 0 for 4 on Thursday.
Analysis: Teixeira is hitless in 12 at-bats and mired in a 3-for-42 stretch with a .188 OPS in his last 12 games. His incompetence is so mammoth that words cannot describe how useless and pathetic a hitter this once-feared slugger has morphed into. He's developing into one of the greatest busts in fantasy baseball history.
June 2 8:45 AM PT9:45 AM MT10:45 AM CT11:45 AM ET11:45 ET15:45 GMT23:45 8:45 AM MST10:45 AM EST11:15 AM VEN19:45 UAE10:45 AM CT-Teixeira was 0 for 4 on Wednesday.
Analysis: Teixeira is batting .185 with a .550 OPS. He is 3 for 38 with a .208 OPS in his last 11 games, which means that your average Double-A hitter would fare better.
June 1 1:57 PM PT2:57 PM MT3:57 PM CT4:57 PM ET16:57 ET20:57 GMT4:57 1:57 PM MST3:57 PM EST4:27 PM VEN0:57 UAE (+1)3:57 PM CT-Teixeira was 0 for 4 on Tuesday.
Analysis: Teixeira is batting .190 with a .563 OPS. He batted .159 with a pathetic .423 OPS in May in a dismal display of ineptitude.
May 25 4:01 PM PT5:01 PM MT6:01 PM CT7:01 PM ET19:01 ET23:01 GMT7:01 4:01 PM MST6:01 PM EST6:31 PM VEN3:01 UAE (+1)6:01 PM CT-Teixeira missed a second straight game Thursday and is expected to sit out at least two more with a stiff neck.
Analysis: Teixeira received cortisone shots in his neck Thursday, one day after an MRI revealed inflammation in the area. The veteran first baseman also missed two games earlier this month with a similar problem. The injury has contributed to Teixeira's slow start, as he's hitting .195 with just three home runs in 42 games.
May 10 4:42 PM PT5:42 PM MT6:42 PM CT7:42 PM ET19:42 ET23:42 GMT7:42 4:42 PM MST6:42 PM EST7:12 PM VEN3:42 UAE (+1)6:42 PM CT-Teixeira is the latest New York Yankees player to get hurt, joining Alex Rodriguez, Jacoby Ellsbury and CC Sabathia. After starting New York's first 30 games this season, Teixeira was out of the starting lineup against Kansas City on Tuesday night because of neck spasms.
Analysis: Teixeira is hitting .202 with three homers and 11 RBIs, and Girardi thought it is possible the neck problem was hurting his production. Ellsbury has been sidelined since straining his right hip on Friday.
May 1 10:43 AM PT11:43 AM MT12:43 PM CT1:43 PM ET13:43 ET17:43 GMT1:43 10:43 AM MST12:43 PM EST1:13 PM VEN21:43 UAE12:43 PM CT-Teixeira was 0 for 3 on Saturday.

Analysis: After batting .170 through his first 14 games, Teixeira is 9 for 20 over a five-game hitting streak.
Apr. 8 10:01 PM PT11:01 PM MT12:01 AM CT1:01 AM ET1:01 ET5:01 GMT13:01 10:01 PM MST12:01 AM EST12:31 AM VEN9:01 UAE12:01 AM CT-Teixeira was 2 for 4 with his second dinger, a three-run blast.
Analysis: More importantly, Teixeira understands how important it is to play for the Yankees. "This is the whole package. The Yankees are the whole package," Teixeira said. "I mean once you play for the Yankees, you've kind of reached the pinnacle of Major League Baseball."
Mar. 2 2:34 PM PT3:34 PM MT4:34 PM CT5:34 PM ET17:34 ET22:34 GMT6:34 3:34 PM MST5:34 PM EST6:04 PM VEN2:34 UAE (+1)4:34 PM CT-Teixeira went 0 for 1 and walked in his first game Wednesday since missing the final month last season with a right shin injury.
Analysis: Teixeira, who turns 36 in April and is in the final season of a $180 million, eight-year contract, hit a second-inning grounder and walked in the fourth. He played four innings at first base.
