Mark Teixeira says his surgically repaired right wrist is holding up well, but don’t look for the first baseman to play in an exhibition game until March 3 at the earliest.

Teixeira, who didn’t swing at any of Jim Miller’s batting practice pitches by design Thursday at George M. Steinbrenner Field, said he wasn’t sure when he would face live batting practice pitches.
“Probably a week to 10 days,’’ said Teixeira, who continues to hit off a batting tee and take batting practice off coaches.

March 3 against the Nationals at home would be 11 days from Thursday.
Whenever Teixeira plays this year, he will do so with both wrists taped. Until starting offseason workouts in January, Teixeira never taped either wrist.

“I am following doctors’ orders,’’ said Teixeira, who didn’t tape his left wrist in 2009 when he suffered a similar tendon injury that didn’t require surgery. “The tape feels good and I tape myself.’’
