Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees lineup tonight with what Joe Girardi is saying is a neck injury. The veteran first baseman told the team that his neck “locked up” and he will not be available tonight.

This is the second time this season where Teixeira has had neck issues. Girardi said he is concerned with the injury but does not know the extent and timeline of the injury.

Teixeira’s struggles are well known at this point in the season. Neither her nor Girardi are making any excuses but it is possible his slow start has been caused by a stiff neck. He is currently hitting .195/.294/.282 on the season with only 3 home runs and 12 RBIs.

Dustin Ackley replaces Teixeira in tonight’s lineup and is batting sixth. We will update with more information as it comes.
