Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is still feeling pain in his damaged right wrist more than a week after receiving a cortisone shot intended to soothe the discomfort from a partially torn tendon sheath, again raising the possibility that Teixeira will need to undergo season-ending surgery.

"He's still experiencing soreness," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com on Monday. "We're trying to work through it."

Cashman would not say specifically whether Teixeira would undergo surgery but acknowledged it has "always been a possibility."

On Sunday, Teixeira was uncharacteristically short with reporters who asked about the condition of his wrist.

"I really don't want to talk about anything right now," he said. "We'll discuss it at the appropriate time."
