When New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter returned from his significant ankle injury to appear just prior to the All-Star break, the team and its fans hoped it was a sign of a healthier second half to come. Instead, it looks like it could be more of the same for the Yankees, as the team announced today that Jeter will be heading back to the disabled list, this time with a quad injury. Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger reports that infielder Brent Lillibridge will take Jeter’s spot on New York’s roster. Derek Jeter is going on the disabled list, the Yankees say. Brent Lillibridge will take his roster spot. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) July 19, 2013 Jeter couldn’t make it through is first game back off the DL, as he exited the contest following his fourth at-bat due to tightness in his right quad. The injury was later diagnosed as a Grade 1 strain, but The Captain continued to say that he expected to play the next day. While Jeter may have thought he was ready to resume his return, the Yankees elected to keep him out of the lineup until after the All-Star break. They added that a decision on his status wouldn’t be made until after this week’s festivities, and this uncertainty carried on into yesterday. With the announcement, the Yankees are sidelining Jeter for at least another week. It’s unclear at this point how the injury has progressed or if Jeter is expected to require another stint in the minors. If he’s only going to treated for another week or so, additional time on rehab assignment probably won’t be necessary. But if the ailment is more severe than initially thought or lingers longer than expected, he could again require rehab games to regain his timing at the plate.

  • He and A-Rod should call it quits...they're probably holding back some great young prospects. There's a time to start and a time to quit.
