2016 will be the last season for Mark Teixeira. According the ESPN’s Buster Olney, Teixera will call it quits once the season ends.




The Yankees won a championship with Teixeira during 2009. He will be forever known for his defense first winning 3 gold gloves along the way. Big Tex played for the Rangers, Braves, Angels, and Yankees during his 14 year career.

With the Yankees going through a full scale rebuild there wasn’t a chance Teixeira was in their future plans. He was set to become a free agent following this season. New York were big time sellers at the trade deadline so it is highly unlikely we see him in the postseason.
