(AP) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will have season-ending surgery on his right wrist.


The Yankees said Wednesday that the All-Star had an MRI with dye contrast and that team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad determined the torn tendon sheath had not adequately healed. New York said hand specialists Drs. Melvin Rosenwasser of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Michelle Carlson of the Hospital for Special Surgery and Keith Raskin of the New York University School of Medicine school concurred in the diagnosis.


Recovery time for the surgery is projected at six months.
