Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was sent to have his right wrist evaluated by team doctors on Tuesday and could be facing season-ending surgery.

Teixeira was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 18, just two days after receiving a cortisone injection to alleviate inflammation in his wrist.

The 33-year-old Teixeira is hitting .151 with three homers and 12 RBI in 15 games this season.

The switch-hitting slugger began the season on the 15-day disabled list after suffering a strained wrist tendon during the World Baseball Classic on March 6. He was transferred to the 60-day disabled list in May, then officially activated on May 31.
