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.
