Jeter was 1-for-4 with a strikeout before exiting. He was replaced at shortstop by Eduardo Nunez, who did not make a plate appearance.
Nunez seems likely to start at short in Thursday afternoon’s series finale against the Tigers.
The Yankees haven’t announced any plans for an MRI or other types of tests on Jeter’s hip, but it makes sense to give the 36-year-old a day or two of rest for precautionary reasons.
Jeter is batting .250 with a brutal .308 on-base percentage and .269 slugging percentage through 116 plate appearances this season. He doesn’t have a home run and boasts only two extra-base hits.
