Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fourth inning of the team's game against Baltimore, an inning after he was hit in the right hand by a pitch from Orioles starter Jake Arrieta.
X-rays were negative, the team announced and he is day to day with a bruised middle finger.
"I'm not expecting it to be a week," manager Joe Girardi said, according to the Associated Press. "Could it be a day, or two? I think it could be."
Jeter was examined by Girardi and the team's trainer and stayed in the game for the top of the fourth, but was then lifted for pinch hitter Francisco Cervelli when his spot came up in the fourth.@cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
