Mark Teixeira Trades and Transactions

The Mark Teixeira trades and transactions seen below include all known instances where Mark Teixeira has been involved in a trade or transaction of any type as it relates to baseball.

"I was definitely happy and excited inside (after hitting for the cycle on August 17, 2004 ), but you don't want to be celebrating in a situation (winning 16-1 at the time) like that. Triples are a weird thing, especially for a guy like me. You need some bounces, you need a big outfield. For me, they're few and far between. They (his teammates) were kidding me, telling me to trip over first base (to get the single) if I hit one into the gap." - Mark Teixeira (Associated Press, August 18, 2004)
