Teixeira could be back by Friday 

Good news on the Mark Teixeira front...Teixeira apparently took batting practice on Saturday. After swinging lefty Saturday, if everything goes to plan, he's supposed to take B.P. from the right side tomorrow, have a simulated game on Monday, and then join Frisco for a rehab assignment on Tuesday.

If he has no setbacks, he could be back for the Boston series starting on Friday.

That's good news, as oblique muscles can sometimes linger for quite a while, and Teixeira was red-hot when he went on the D.L. Still, the Rangers don't want to rush him back and risk re-injury, so the timetable for return could be pushed back if he exhibits any problems...
