Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will likely require a day off on a consistent basis for the rest of the season due to continued issues with his knee, according to Brendan Kuty of NJ.com.
On Friday night, Teixeira exited the Yankees' 10-2 loss to the Indians early after citing that his knee was acting up to manager Joe Girardi.
For the duration of this season Teixeira is expected to receive lubricant injections in his knee in order to alleviate the pain. Surgery has not been ruled out as an option following the season.
Teixeira, 36, is hitting just .188 with seven home runs and 19 RBI this season.
