Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has a wrist check up Monday, at which time he's hoping to remove the protective brace on his injured right wrist.

Teixeira said he's hoping to be back in action May 1. He's been keeping active and working everything except his wrist, doing the maximum he can to be ready when he's off the disabled list. Getting the brace is one of many steps toward that goal.

Brian Cashman said it's "way too early" to know about Teixeira's wrist, but he's working hard in the meantime. From the AP report:

"But I know one thing: He's busting his tail," Cashman said. "He's doing leg stuff, he's doing all these different stuff, so every aspect of his body other than the wrist can be better."
