Update (10:50pm): The MRI showed a Grade I strain of the calf, which is the lowest grade strain there is. They’ll determine the next step tomorrow, but I have a hard time believing he’ll avoid the disabled list.
Update (10:08pm): Joe Girardi said after the game that the Yankees are sending Jeter for an MRI, which is a bit of a no-brainer. “Obviously we’re worried about him,” said the skipper, who mentioned that Jeter is unlikely to play tomorrow even if the MRI comes back clean.
Update (9:03pm): Jeter left the game with a sore right calf. That’s all we know right now, though I assume they’ll do some tests to make sure “sore” isn’t really “strain.”
Original Post (8:46pm): Derek Jeter left tonight’s game with an apparent leg injury after flying out to lead off the fifth inning. He just pulled up lame on his way to first, and was then seen slamming his helmet as he walked into the clubhouse with trainer Steve Donohue. The chase for 3,000 might be put on hold. More to come.
