Via Bryan Hoch, Derek Jeter is day-to-day after getting hit in the left pinky by a 95 mph Justin Verlander fastball in the 5th inning of today’s game. Jeter was noticeably in pain, but he stayed in and played the rest of the way. Considering that he’s down to .269-.314-.407 after today, it might not be the worst idea in the world to use this as an excuse to sit the Cap’n for a day or two and give him a bit of a breather. He’s got to hit and get on base if this team’s going to go anywhere.
