TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Yankees' Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis are starting a two-game rehab stint Wednesday in New Jersey.
The cornerstones of the New York Yankees infield at first and third base will play for the Trenton Thunder, the New York Yankees' Double-A affiliate.
If all goes well, Teixeira and Youkilis could be back in the Bronx by the end of the week.
Teixeira is recovering from a right wrist injury sustained while playing with Team USA before the World Baseball Classic. Youkilis has missed nearly 30 games with a back injury.
The Yankees say both could rejoin the team in time for the start of a series against the Boston Red Sox on Friday.
