Manager Joe Girardi’s decision to use Derek Jeter as the DH for the second time in three games last night against the White Sox had nothing to do with Jeter’s legs or any other body part barking. “I am trying to make sure we can run him out there every day’’ said Girardi who has had Jeter in the lineup for all seven games since he returned from the DL last Monday in Toronto. Jeter started five games at short and counting last night’s assignment was the DH twice. “It’s nothing physical; I am just trying to run him out there every day. He is fine he is great.’’ Jeter went 2-for-3 and scored a run. His leadoff single against Chris Sale in the eighth ignited a five-run rally that carried the Yankees to a 6-4 victory. With 3314 hits Jeter moved into sole possession of ninth place on the all-time list. Next up is Paul Molitor who is eighth with 3319. Not having Jayson Nix (fractured left hand) is a negative for Girardi who used Eduardo Nunez at short. It’s less than a week since Nunez crumbled to the Rogers Centre turf . He missed three games with a knee problem before starting at short Sunday. “He says he is OK’’ Girardi said of Nunez who made up for a first-inning error by delivering a two-run double in the eighth that broke a 4-4 tie. “We watch him and as he plays more he will gain more confidence running. He says he is fine.’’
