Yankees' Youkilis needs surgery, Teixeira to DL

Kevin Youkilis needs back surgery and Mark Teixeira has returned to the 15-day disabled list with an aching right wrist, the latest injury setbacks for the depleted New York Yankees.

The team made the announcements Tuesday before playing the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Youkilis will miss at least 10-12 weeks after he has surgery in California on Thursday. He had gone back on the DL last Friday. 

Teixeira missed the first 53 games of the season because of a wrist injury. The switch-hitting first baseman got off to an encouraging start when he returned but has slumped to a .151 average with three home runs and 12 RBIs in 53 at-bats.

He left the team during its recent West Coast trip, went back to New York and received a cortisone shot Sunday.
