Description: Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira hasn't found his swing because he still doesn't trust his surgically-repaired right wrist, according to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post.
Insight: Teixeira played just 15 games last season due to a torn tendon sheath in his wrist and hit just .151 with three homers and 19 strikeouts in 53 at-bats. A former 30-plus home run guy, he'll have to prove to fantasy owners he can find his swing before he gets installed in starting lineups. That explains his Yahoo ADP of 190.

Description: Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira (wrist) will make his Grapefruit League debut Thursday, according to mlb.com. He took three swings from each side of the plate in live batting practice Monday and will take BP again Tuesday. "I feel pretty good. We've been here over two weeks now, and the wrist is getting stronger," Teixeira said. "That's the biggest thing. It needs to get stronger. The bat speed is pretty good. We'll keep building up, and hopefully on April 1 it's feeling really good and the swing's feeling really good and I'm ready to roll."
Insight: Teixeira played just 15 games last season due to a torn tendon sheath in his wrist and hit just .151 with three homers and 19 strikeouts in 53 at-bats. He's been in a steep decline since 2009 and should only be selected in the latter rounds of fantasy drafts.

Insight: It's the same wrist Teixeira (.151, 3 HR, 12 RBI in 2013) had surgery on last season. Teixeira's fantasy value is very unclear at the moment. There's no reason to consider him until much later in the draft.

Insight: Teixeira has been struggling with a wrist injury, though his MRI results came back clean. This season has been a disaster for Teixeira. In 15 games, he's hitting just .151 with 19 strikeouts in 53 at bats. For fantasy purposes, he's a lost cause.
