ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left New York's game against the Los Angeles Angels in the fourth inning Saturday with an aggravated right wrist.

Teixeira, who missed the first 53 games of the season with a wrist injury, will be examined by Yankees team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad in New York on Sunday.

Teixeira flied out to right and fouled out to third before leaving Saturday's game when David Adams replaced him at first base.

Teixeira is hitless in his last 12 at-bats. He is just 8 for 53 since coming off the disabled list May 31, including a 4-for-35 slump on the Yankees' current road trip, which ends Sunday in Anaheim.

The $180 million slugger missed the first two months of the season with a torn sheath in his right wrist. He was hurt in early March while taking swings off a batting tee while training with the U.S. team for the World Baseball Classic.
