Joe Girardi said " the plan" is for Mark Teixeira to rejoin the Yankees for Saturday's game, although there is a caveat: "Our plan is to give him today (off) to make sure that he's OK and then get him back in there tomorrow. " Teixeira, on the DL since June 4 with a cartilage tear in his right knee, just finished a 3-game rehab assignment for AAA Scranton, where he went 1-for-9 with a walk. Teixeira is hitting just .180 with 3 HRs and 12 RBI. "I know he's off to a slow start but I really don't think that's going to continue," Girardi said. "We expect him to be Mark."
