Teixeira, Youkilis set to finish rehab Thursday

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and third baseman Kevin Youkilis will play their final rehab games Thursday night with the Double-A Trenton Thunder as they work their way back from injuries.

Barring any setbacks, the pair will rejoin the Yankees on Friday for the start of a weekend series against the Boston Red Sox.

Both went 0 for 2 with a walk in their first rehab game Wednesday, but said they felt fine afterward and are ready to rejoin the Yankees.

Their return could help bolster the Yankees’ offense, which has sputtered during a four-game losing streak.
