FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: MARK TEIXEIRA (SHIN) OUT AGAIN FRIDAY

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup again on Friday with ongoing discomfort in his shin that was hit by a foul ball last Monday.  Teixeira reported improvement in the shin Thursday as he shed the crutches he was using since Monday but not enough to get back into the lineup.  Greg Bird will once again start in his place.

Analysis:  Good news for those holding stock in Bird but quite annoying for those who own Teixeira.  It has been a tremendous comeback season for Teixeira in 2015 with his 31 home runs and being near the MLB lead in RBI all year but we all know his penchant for injuries being of the lingering variety.
