The sheath is partially torn thus the inflammation. However, the TENDON is stable. Bautista had an UNSTABLE TENDON which is why he had surgery. Tex still has a 30% chance of surgery – depends on the Tendon itself.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Mark Teixeira says he has a partially torn tendon sheath in his right wrist.

And ESPN New York:

ESPNNewYork.com’s Wallace Matthews reacts to the news that Mark Teixeira suffered a partially torn tendon sheath that could require season-ending surgery.

The sheath is inflamed (swollen) the tendon is stable. NOT the same as Bautista. They will not bring in a full time player (lefty) until they no how long he will be out. We need the DH spot for all the other old guys with injuries. Bringing in Morneau then negates Haffner if Tex comes back. If Tex is out for year, THEN it makes sense.

A long year for sure. Pitching our ONLY chance to stay close until we get the boys back!!!!!!!!

Hal pay $14million for one player? He can sign a van full of retired and washed up nobodies for that kind of money!!!

Mark DeRosa had the same type of injury, also google golfer Luke Donald to see how the surgery got him back on the course pain free.
My point was that the Yankees should be looking for a replacement, as Juan Rivera cannot be the Yankees starting first baseman on April 1. Morneau only has a year left on his contract and the Yankees could use his power too. What if Tex is out for the season? And even if Tex does come back he cannot play everyday; and Haftner could get hurt easily too so having Morneau would give the Yankees the depth they are missing.
I am so sick of Hal Steinbrenner as it is time to do something now but he could careless. I am still in shock about Russell Martin, who said two days ago that the Yankees never even approached his agent in the off-season. He thought he woudl be with the Yankees, and I did too.

Tex's Tendon is stable Bautista's was not which is why he had surgery. The 30% chance still looms but hopefully the membrane will heal. It's tricky.

Sorry about your elbow but your comparing apples and oranges again.
