Puts Tommy John surgery behind him
KISSIMEE, Fla. -- When you talk about the most important Yankees of 2014, Mark Teixeira might not be first, but he is high on the list. When you consider the Yankees having no true backup for him, Teixeira's importance swells. On Saturday, he doubled in his second start of the spring. Overall, Teixeira went 1-for-2 with a walk.

We are going to look at everything that gives us the best 12-man pitching staff.
It had been nearly two years since Michael Pineda stood on the mound at Steinbrenner Field, and in 2012, it was a memorable night for all the wrong reasons. He left with a shoulder injury that has prevented him from throwing a regular-season pitch for the Yankees.
