Derek Jeter Gets Hit In First Rehab Game With Trenton

For the first time in nearly 3 weeks, Derek Jeter finally got back on the baseball diamond.

Last night, the Yankees shortstop played 5 innings for the Trenton Thunder, the Yankees AA affiliate, in a rehab game.  It was his first action since injuring his right calf against the Indians on June 13th.

Jeter went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored while playing great defense at shortstop.  He wore his regular #2 and hit leadoff for the Thunder in a game against the Altoona Curve.

Jeter got 3 at-bats in this game.  In the first inning, he singled between third and short, advanced to third on a double and then scored on a sac fly.  In the 2nd, he lined out to the first baseman.  And in the 5th inning he drew a walk.  Jeter was then removed from game for a pinch-runner.

On defense, he started a double play in the 2nd inning, made an assist on a grounder in the 3rd and got all 3 putouts in the 4th.

Jeter will play one more game for Trenton on Sunday.  Then his quest for 3,000 career hits, which has been put on hold due to the injury since mid-June, will resume tomorrow night at Cleveland.  He stands at 2,994 hits.
