Teixeira expected to rejoin Yanks in KC

ARLINGTON -- Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is expected to rejoin the team on Thursday, when the club opens a four-game series against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

Teixeira was granted permission to remain in New York for the Rangers series, attending to his wife, Leigh, who gave birth to the couple's third child -- a boy, William Charles -- on Tuesday.

With Teixeira absent, the Yankees started Lance Berkman at first base for both games against the Rangers.
