 SEATTLE (AP) -Texas first baseman Mark Teixeira left the Rangers' game Friday night against Seattle in the third inning because of a mild concussion after getting hit below the left eye with an outfield throw while scoring.
Teixeira was sliding feet first into home after Marlon Byrd's single when Ichiro Suzuki's throw from center field banged off the left side of Teixeira's face and caromed to the dugout railing. A trainer met the 2005 All-Star on his way into the dugout and then examined Teixeira on the bench, as Teixeira squinted and winced.
Mariners doctor Mitch Storey then examined Teixeira and diagnosed the concussion. He did not return to the game.
Rangers manager Ron Washington said Teixeira ``was quite dizzy'' but that the 2005 All-Star was feeling better by the time Texas had won the nearly four-hour contest.
When asked if Teixeira would play Saturday to extend his streak of 501 consecutive games played - the second-longest streak in the major leagues - Washington said: ``If we decide to not start him, but if he feels like he can have an at-bat, then of course I'm going to give him an at-bat. But his health is most important. We need him.''
Matt Kata moved from third base to replace Teixeira at first, and third baseman Ramon Vazquez replaced Teixeira as the Rangers' No. 3 hitter for the bottom of the third.
