NEW YORK (AP) - Doctors have recommended that Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira have surgery on his right wrist, which likely would end his season.

The Yankees said Wednesday that the All-Star had an MRI with dye contrast and that team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad said the torn tendon sheath had not adequately healed. New York said hand specialists Drs. Melvin Rosenwasser of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Michelle Carlson of the Hospital for Special Surgery and Keith Raskin of the New York University School of Medicine school concurred.

Teixeira was hurt while hitting off a tee March 5, when he was with the U.S. team at the World Baseball Classic. He made his season debut May 31, then came out of a game May 15 because of inflammation. He went back on the disabled list and did not respond to a cortisone shot.
