Thanks for stopping by, Jeter
NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter will miss the Yankees' weekend series against Minnesota with a strained right quadriceps, and New York cannot rule out a return to the disabled list.
After missing the first 91 games of the season because of a broken ankle, Jeter was activated Thursday and went 1 for 4 with an RBI groundout as the designated hitter against Kansas City. He injured the leg in his third at-bat.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that an MRI showed a grade one strain.
"We'll have to give it some time and see how he responds," Cashman said.
New York is off from Monday to Thursday for the All-Star break, so the Yankees will have a week to decide whether Jeter has to go back on the DL. After the break, they start a series at Boston on July 19. The 39-year-old shortstop broke his left ankle Oct. 13 in the AL championship series opener, then broke it again in April during his rehabilitation.
