#Yankees place 1B Mark Teixeira on 15-day DL with right hamstring strain; recall C Austin Romine from Triple-A @swbrailriders.The beat guys have all the details, but the team made it official a few hours ago. Teix has been put on the 15-day DL and Austin Romine has been called up. It sounds like the team is going to go with the exact plan I described earlier this morning. Johnson will be the primary first base man, Cervelli will work in some when the matchups are favorable, and Romine will get some time behind the plate.

Early indications are that Teix's hamstring strain isn't that bad and the team is hopeful he can return right after the 15 days are up. That would be the best possible outcome, as long as he's fully recovered.
