Jeter day-to-day with a bruised right middle finger

By

Derek Jeter left today’s game with an apparent right hand injury. He got hit by a pitch in the fingers to leadoff the third, and also hurt the same digits last night on a ground ball. He was in obvious pain after the hit-by-pitch, but no work on the extent of the injury. We’ll update with more when he get it.

Update: It’s a bruised right middle finger and x-rays were negative. The Cap’n is day-to-day.

    Starks reports Yanks just called Rox about Ian Stewart.

    I wonder if Jeter got removed because he’s being traded…

    He had been hitting well since getting back. Hopefully he’s not out for long, one game of Cervelli in the infield is enough.

    nightmare if he hits the DL, who do you call up?? Russo?

  • Josh S.

    Apparently since cano is dh’ing nunez slid over to short and cervelli is now playing 2b. Would rather put cano in the field and lose the dh. Sweaty freddy is prob a better hitter than cerv

    • Jack Merridew

      I think if the game remains close they’ll put Cano in the field when they pass his spot in the order and lose the DH.

  • Will (the other one)

    I’ll show you a finger, Trebek!

    They absolutely need to call up a middle infielder for tomorrow, which means they need to demote Hughes. With Pena on the DL, it would end up being Doug Bernier or Kevin Russo – both can play all over the field, but Bernier is easier to remove off the 40-man roster. Nova starting the double-header would mean that someone (like Noesi, Warren, etc.) would have to make a spot start somewhere to get the rotation on a normal cycle.

      He’s day-to-day, I doubt they call anyone up.

    • Cuso

      Yeah, they absolutely won’t do that.
