Toronto Canada. New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said on Sunday he expects first baseman Mark Teixiera to return from a left calf injury he suffered in late August to return to the lineup on Monday and play first base when the Yankees play a three game series against their arch rival Boston Red Sox in New York that will conclude the 2012 Major League Baseball regular season.

Teixiera is currently in Tampa Florida working out at the Yankees practice facility and he has said his left calf injury has been healed.

Girardi said "We expect to see him on Monday. He'll see the doctor tomorrow and see if he's cleared to play."

Girardi said the return of Teixiera to the lineup will be a boost since the Yankees hitters have had a difficult team hitting left handed pitchers. Teixiera can hit left handed pitchers and help balanced the power in the lineup.

Teixiera injured his left calf in August 27 and he reinjured his left calf on September 8 in a baseball game in Baltimore against the Orioles.

Girardi said Teixiera will play first base since his healed calf will be loose instead of being stiff if he plays designated hitter and rides the bench.

Girardi said "My thinking is first base, but I'll talk to him and see what he thinks."
