TAMPA, Fla. -- Mark Teixeira got a late start to his spring, as he was in the final stages of his rehab from right wrist surgery, but the Yankees first baseman has been able to have an uninterrupted schedule since then.

"You look at this whole Spring Training, and there's never been a point where he was scheduled to work that he had to say, 'I could use a day,'" Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "That's really encouraging to me. Everything that he's been scheduled to do, he has done."

Teixeira said that he has hit just about all of the necessary checkpoints to tell him that the wrist is in good shape; in fact, Teixeira said that he expects it to continue getting stronger as the year goes on.

Girardi said that he no longer has any injury-related apprehension when he watches Teixeira -- or Derek Jeter, for that matter -- in game action.

"I think they pretty much put it to rest," Girardi said. "Obviously you worry about your guys when they're playing out there every day, but I haven't seen anything to lead me to believe that they're not going to be healthy this season."
