Teixeira returns to Yanks' lineup from calf injury
Teixeira was down to bat fifth and play first base in Monday night's game against Boston, the start of a three-game series that is to end the regular season. He injured his left calf Aug. 27 and returned Sept. 8 at Baltimore but aggravated the injury diving into first base on a game-ending groundout and has not played since.
