Derek Jeter

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Derek Jeter has left the Yankees' game against the Indians after flying out in the fifth inning. Jeter seemed to limp as he ran to first and was immediately left the team's dugout to be examined by trainers. He was replaced by Eduardo Nunez in the top of the sixth. The Yankees announced he left the game and has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain, the lowest level of strain. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, "Yeah, I'm worried about it." senior writer Danny Knobler was at the game and has more from Yankee Stadium here. Jeter led off the bottom of the first Monday with a sharp single to left off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, giving him a total of 2,994 hits for his career. Jeter needs six more hits to get to 3,000. The team finishes its series against Cleveland tonight before starting a three-game series with the Rangers at Yankee Stadium.

MONDAY: 1 for 3.


ALL-TIME LIST: Jeter will stand at 28th until he ties Roberto Clemente at 3,000.

NEXT UP: Girardi said he doesn't expect Jeter to play on Tuesday against the Rangers. If he does play, Jeter has had more success against Rangers starter Alexi Ogando than most, with two hits in five at-bats plus a walk in just six overall plate appearances against Texas' reliever-turned-starter. Both of Jeter's hits against the right-hander are single, but there's no shame in that, as hitters are slugging just .288 off Ogando and hitting .188. Jeter singled and walked in two plate appearances against Ogando in last year's playoffs and singled in three plate appearances on April 17 of this season.

I just saw on the bottom crawl on ESPN, Jeter was pulled from the game with menstrual cramps.  Good news Yankee fans, "The Captain" (insert joke here) is listed as day to day.  So he's still on track to get to 3,000 by July 4th

Hey Weiner- I thought you were going to lay off the internet for a while.  Haven't you gotten into enough trouble posting pictures of your fake nuts?
