After Derek Jeter was hurt last week, there was initially a question of whether Jeter would head to the DL or try to just rest and continue his run at 3,000 hits.
Well, it turns out the DL was the right move because it appears Jeter won't be ready to come off the DL when he's eligible on Wednesday, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.
Jeter suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right calf on June 13 after trying to run out a fly ball in a game against Cleveland. Since then there have been reports that Jeter was ready to start working out in Tampa, but he has yet to do so.
"He is still feeling the calf," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told King. "He is doing nothing but long-toss. He is getting better but not in position to do anything yet."
Jeter hasn't run or fielded yet.
"I can't tell you right now when he will be ready," Cashman said. "He is getting treatment every day and feeling better, but he can't run and can't swing the bat."
Yankees manager Joe Girardi has insinuated that Jeter would likely need a minor-league rehab assignment before he returns to the Yankees.
Jeter needs six hits to become the first Yankee to reach 3,000 hits. The Yankees schedule doesn't have a long homestead until July 22-31, with only three other games at home in the month -- a set against the Rays before the All-Star break. New York has eight games in Toronto and Tampa following the break.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
