Jeter out with right knee contusion, he and A-Rod likely out MondayBy
Update (10:44pm): X-rays on the kneecap came back negative, but Jeter is unlikely to play tomorrow. In other news, Alex Rodriguez was unavailable tonight and is also unlikely to play tomorrow because his sore thumb is acting up again. The Yankees aren’t in a position where they need these two every single game, so let them rest up and get healthy.
Original (7:48pm): Derek Jeter was a very, very late scratch from tonight’s game because of a right knee contusion. He fouled a ball off his knee in the first game of the doubleheader, but managed to finish the game. Wasn’t all that hard to do since he was the DH. No idea on the extent of the injury, but hopefully it’s a day-to-day thing.
