Derek JeterBy C. Trent Rosecrans and Evan Brunell

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.

Cervelli stayed in the game at second base, while Eduardo Nunez replaced Jeter at shortstop. New York eventually won the game, 4-2.

Jeter day to day with bruised finger

Comments on Jeter articles are the best!!!! A lot of funny people out there and they always bring thier best to bash Jeter. Any1 see the HBO Jeter 3000 episode? I hate him even more now and I didn't think it was possible.

He should call Peja Stojackovich for a good physical therapist.  That, and stop telling A-Rod, "Hey, pull my finger."  Girardi will have to enforce his "no farts in the dug-out rule" for sure, now.

So was he actually hit by the pitch, or did he act like he was hit by the pitch? With Jeter you never know.
