PLAYERS: Derek Jeter
TEAMS: New York Yankees
New York  Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was held out of yesterday's starting lineup due to his ankle injury, an ailment that will sideline him for at least the next few days, according to Josh Vitale of MLB.com. Jeter was removed from Saturday's contest after experiencing soreness in his surgically-repaired left ankle. As a precaution, the Yankees will sit the Captain for a few games and then re-evaluate his ankle. The shortstop underwent a precautionary CT scan prior to Saturday's game, and the results came back negative. That's good news for Jeter and the Yankees, but he's still not out of the wood yet as the soreness has continued. Manager Joe Girardi told reporters that he's been concerned with how Jeter's been moving, prompting the skipper to rest the veteran for the next few games. "During his career, he's played through so much," Girardi said. "He's been nicked up before. You play as long as he has, you've probably been nicked up a lot. As I said yesterday, there was some concern over the way he was moving for me. I just thought we needed to get it checked out." To this point, New York isn't considering shutting Jeter down for the remainder of the season. Instead, the Yankees will sit him for at least two games before he's re-evaluated. That's when a determination on his future, at least for the remainder of the week, will be determined. While Jeter is frustrated with the decision, he understands why he's being held out, according to Girardi. "He understands," Girardi said. "I know he's frustrated and he wants to be out there. It's tearing him up inside. As much as he doesn't like it and he wants to be out there, I think he understands our point of view about trying to give it a couple of days to calm down." Jeter has spent multiple stints on the disabled list this season, as he missed the start of the campaign while recovering from his ankle surgery. Over 17 games, the 39-year-old has hit only .190/.288/.254. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Jeter may be better off sitting

On Friday, I asked Derek Jeter if it would be special to pass Paul Molitor for ninth place on the all-time hits list.

As I expected, Jeter mostly shrugged off the question, saying he only thought about such milestones when reporters...
