TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ The New York Yankees’ Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis have begun a rehab stint in New Jersey, working their way back from injuries.
They played for the Trenton Thunder, the Yankees Double-A affiliate.
Youkilis, recovering from a back injury, flied out to shallow right in the first, and Teixeira led off the second with a pop-out to the shortstop.
In the fourth, Youkilis fouled out to first base and Teixeira walked.
Teixeira is recovering from an injured right wrist.
Both could rejoin the Yankees after their two games in the minors in time for the start of a series against the Boston Red Sox on Friday.
