"The worm is turning" on Tex

Mark Texiera enters tonight at .143, but hitting coach Kevin Long says he has "no concern whatsoever" that Teixeira will not snap out of it.

"I can see the worm turning," Long said.

Long admitted that Teixeira annual poor April could be psychological.

"It could be a little bit in his mind," Long said. "He's a mentally tough kid."

But Long added it might be subconscious.

Teixeria said, "If I had the answer, then we wouldn't be talking about it."
