Jeter grounded into a double play while going 0-for-3 off Mark Buehrle and is hitting .114. He did make a good defensive play, reacting quickly with the infield in to take a hit away from Chris Getz in the fifth inning.
"I'm not really too worried about it," Girardi said. "It is Spring Training. He was off almost a year and a half. He feels better at the plate. He says his timing is getting better.''
Teixeira played all nine innings at first base, going 0-for-4. He chased a low pitch to strike out against lefty Steve Delabar in the ninth inning, which dropped his average to .115. He's homerless in 26 at-bats.
