Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is expected to miss the team's entire three-game series against the Texas Rangers due to a mildly strained lat muscle.

Teixeira, who went 0-for-12 in New York's first three games following the All- Star break, told reporters Monday that he hopes to be back in the lineup in 3- to-4 days.

The veteran slugger leads the Yankees in both home runs (17) and RBI (48) this season and owns a .231 average in 76 games.

Kelly Johnson will start at first base for Monday's matchup with the Rangers.
