On Wednesday, the Yankees announced that first baseman Mark Teixeira has been advised to have surgery on his ailing right wrist. From the team's release:

After a recent MRI with dye contrast was performed on Mark Teixeira's right wrist, New York Yankees Team Physician, Dr. Christopher Ahmad, along with Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser and two other New York-based hand specialists (Dr. Michelle Carlson from the Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Keith Raskin from NYU) confirmed that the sheath has not adequately healed. Surgery has been recommended to repair the tear on the tendon sheath of his wrist.
Teixeira initially sustained the injury in spring training but then reaggravated it not long after his May 31 return to the lineup. As MLB.com's Bryan Hoch notes, the surgery, should it come to pass, would likely end Teixeira's 2013 season.

On the year, the 33-year-old switch-hitter is batting .151/.270/.340 in 15 games. For his career, Teixeira owns an OPS+ of 130 to go with 341 home runs. He's signed through the 2016 season.
