UPDATE 5:30 PM: The Yankees have announced that a news conference announcing Teixeira will be held at 1pm Tuesday at the old stadium.  I am going to go out on a limb and say you can probably catch it on the MLB Network, and of course, probably on YES as well. – Trevor


According to multiple media sources (but mainly attributed to Anthony McCarron at Daily News), the new Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will be announced this week, probably as early as this Tuesday. Tex needs to undergo a physical and once that formality is completed, he will probably be announced at the old stadium.

I’m excited about Tex “officially” becoming a Yankee and hoping the Yankees get moving on filling their other needs. It’s already January — approximately 5+ weeks left before spring training starts!
