Yankees 1B Teixeira to miss rest of season with broken leg

NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Teixeira will miss the rest of the season after tests revealed the New York Yankees first baseman has a broken right leg.

Teixeira fouled a ball off his shin Aug. 17 & has started only once since. He had trouble running in that game & was not improving much, so the Yankees sent him for a third round of tests Friday that finally showed a fracture.

''Actually, not surprised,'' Teixeira said. ''It's been really painful. I know the difference between pain & soreness. It's been painful since day one. We were just kind of trying to figure out why it wasn't healing & today we figured it out.''
