Mark Teixeira will be the only member of the Yankees to participate in the 2013 playoffs. It just won't be on the field.

Teixeira is slated to join ex-Yankee and current Mariner Raul Ibanez, Blue Jays infielder Mark DeRosa and Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones as postseason guest studio analysts on MLB Network. White Sox broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson will also provide commentary.

Harrelson is first up, joining MLB Tonight on Oct. 4. Jones will appear on Oct. 6 and 7, Teixeira on Oct. 8 and 9, DeRosa on Oct. 10 and 11 and Ibanez on Oct. 15 and 16.

Teixeira, who won a World Series with the Yankees in 2009, played in just 15 games this season due to injury.
