Derek Jeter Placed On Disabled List

Derek Jeter’s pursuit of 3,000 hits will have to wait at least two weeks.

Today, Yankees put the shortstop on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain.

It’s his first trip to the DL in 8 years.  In 2003, Jeter missed six weeks with a shoulder injury.  Prior to that, Jeter had stints on the 15-day DL in 1998, 2000 and 2001.

Jeter suffered the injury in a 1-0 loss to Cleveland on Monday night.  Jeter left the batter’s box on a flyout in the fifth inning. Jeter immediately took himself out of the game and had an MRI exam, which revealed a Grade 1 strain of the right calf – the least severe form of the injury.

Ramiro Pena was added to the roster prior to Tuesday’s game.

It looks like Jeter will get #3,000 on the road.  If he comes off the DL when he’s eligible on June 28th, he would return for the Yanks 3-game series at home against Milwaukee.  The Yankees will then hit the road for 6 games – three against the Mets at Citi Field and three against the Indians in Cleveland.

Jeter would need to get six hits in those three games against the Brewers to reach the 3,000-hits in front of the Yankee Stadium crowd.
