When we last saw Mark Teixeira in action, he got robbed by Jerry Meals on a close play at first base in the ninth inning of the New York Yankees' 5-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.

It's now looking like that play could rob Teixeira of the rest of his season.

As reported by Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com, Teixeira aggravated an injury to his left calf when he busted down the line in the ninth inning on Saturday night. Yankees manager Joe Girardi admitted that there is some concern that Teixeira will be lost for the rest of the regular season, and the Yankees passed along word on Twitter on Monday that Teixeira will be out for at least the next 10 days:

It goes without saying that the Yankees were hoping for a more favorable outcome. Teixeira is not the player he once was, but he still has plenty of power and he's still one of the best defensive first basemen in the business.

Replacing Teixeira's defense is next to impossible, but replacing his offense won't be too difficult if certain things go right for the Yankees.

Here's a look at eight things that will keep the Yankees' offense going as long as Teixeira is out.
