ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has no new tears in the tendon sheath around his inflamed right wrist.

Teixeira got a cortisone shot Sunday. New York manager Joe Girardi says he will be re-evaluated next week.

Teixeira left the Yankees' 6-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday in the fourth inning. The Yankees sent him back to New York for evaluation on his problematic wrist, which forced him to miss the first 53 games of the season.

Girardi says Teixeira will be out for "a couple of days" while the club waits for the inflammation to subside. If Teixeira had torn the sheath again, he might have been out for the season.

Lyle Overbay filled in at first base Sunday when the Yankees completed their 10-game road trip.
