It is still possible that Derek Jeter could avoid the disabled list.  There's no reason for the New York Yankees to rush and place him on the DL with the All-Star break upon us.  He will get some time off, and New York will be able to evaluate his quadriceps.  If the strain is bad enough and Jeter can't play, he will go on the DL, but manager Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman have not made that decision yet. Bryan Hoch of MLB.com says Jeter will be reevaluated later this week, probably Thursday or Friday.  From there, the team should have a better idea of whether he can play or not.  Of course, Jeter will want to play, but the team has to think about the long-term.  If sending Jeter back out on the field at less than 100 percent risks his future, there's no sense in doing so. Jeter came back from the disabled list and played just one game before potentially having to be placed back on it.  He went 1 for 4 in his 2013 debut, but Jeter suffered a Grade I quadriceps strain while running to first base.  He was lifted toward the end of the game, and has not played since. The Yankees need Jeter's presence in the lineup, but his road to recovery has been long and trying.  They don't want to force something that causes him to miss the rest of the season because of an aggravated injury.  Jeter fractured his ankle originally in the 2012 ALCS.  He came back for spring training only to suffer another smaller break.
