When Joe Girardi removed Derek Jeter from the game in the bottom of the eighth, I assumed he had done so for defensive purposes. After all, Jeter had made the second out in the eighth and wouldn’t come up again in the ninth unless the Yanks had managed a rally. But alas, I was wrong as Girardi said after the game that Jeter left the game with a sore hip. The Yanks’ short stop, hitting .250/.308/.269 on the season, is now listed as day-to-day, and although he says his hip just got stiff and he’ll play tomorrow, I’d bet he’s going to miss a game or two. Hello, Eduardo Nuñez.
