ALCS Game 5: Yankees' Mark Teixeira Off Postseason Roster

Mark Teixeira’s injured hamstring has knocked him off the New York Yankees’ postseason roster.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Game 5 that Teixeira would be replaced on the roster by infielder Eduardo Nunez.

Should the Yankees overcome a 3-1 deficit against the Rangers in the best-of-seven ALCS, Teixeira would not be eligible for the World Series. Teixeira said the injury will need six-to-eight weeks to heal.
