Analysis: Teixeira is hitless in 12 at-bats and mired in a 3-for-42 stretch with a .188 OPS in his last 12 games. His incompetence is so mammoth that words cannot describe how useless and pathetic a hitter this once-feared slugger has morphed into. He's developing into one of the greatest busts in fantasy baseball history.

Analysis: Teixeira received cortisone shots in his neck Thursday, one day after an MRI revealed inflammation in the area. The veteran first baseman also missed two games earlier this month with a similar problem. The injury has contributed to Teixeira's slow start, as he's hitting .195 with just three home runs in 42 games.

After starting New York's first 30 games this season, Teixeira was out of the starting lineup against Kansas City on Tuesday night because of neck spasms.
Analysis: Teixeira is hitting .202 with three homers and 11 RBIs, and Girardi thought it is possible the neck problem was hurting his production. Ellsbury has been sidelined since straining his right hip on Friday.
