Just as it appears that the New York Yankees are getting healthy, another potential visit to the disabled list is possible. MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports the reason that Jeter sat out Saturday night against the San Diego Padres is an aching right calf. Jeter will also miss Sunday's game and try to get back into the lineup on Monday. Girardi said Jeter is dealing with right leg and calf issues. Hoping to get him back in lineup Monday. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) August 3, 2013 Eduardo Nunez played shortstop Saturday night and will probably do so again on Sunday. Jeter and manager Joe Girardi want to give Jeter's leg a chance to rest before testing it again. Hoch reports that Jeter felt a little discomfort during the two-game series in Los Angeles last week and that he hopes his leg "will clam down enough to permit him to avoid the disabled list" for a third time this season. Yankees hope Jeter won't have to go back on the disabled list again — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) August 3, 2013 Girardi spoke of Jeter's leg issues before Saturday night's game. Said Girardi, "He's been battling this leg problem. He's also battling a little calf problem. I'm going to give him the next two days off, see where we're at on Monday, hopefully get him back in there on Monday." There is no DH in San Diego, so Jeter does not have that option. He may be available to pinch hit, but if he reached, he would need a pinch runner, which would mean burning two players. The first priority, though, is to make sure that he is fully ready before exerting too much too fast. Doing so may have helped lead to his second DL stint with a Grade 1 quad strain after just one game on July 11. This year has seen a revolving door to the disabled list for the Yankees. If they want a chance to earn a postseason berth, then they will need all of their players to stay healthy, especially their clutch Yankee captain. Follow Raymond on Twitter @RayBureau.
