Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will sit out the remainder of his team’s series in San Diego against the Padres due to a calf problem, reports Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger. Jeter went 1-for-4 with a single in the series opener last night. Overall, he has three hits, including a solo home run, in 17 plate appearances since returning. They expect Jeter to return to the lineup on Monday against the White Sox.

This is the third time this season Jeter will miss time due to an injury. He missed the first 91 games of the season recovering from a broken ankle suffered in the ALDS last year. He made his season debut on July 11, but went back on the shelf with a strained right quadriceps. He has played in five of his team’s 108 games entering tonight.

    Hopefully this is just something minor and he is back on Monday. The Yanks need Jeter on the field just to offer something to talk about other than the ARoid soap opera. Surely he has some other milestones within reach for hits, or runs scored.

      With 14 more hits, Ichiro will pass Lou Gehrig. Surely that’s cause for a celebration.

        An event that honors Ichiro and the memory of Lou Gehrig is two good reasons to have a party.

    At least, he has played more games this season than Arod.

        The first team I ever loved was the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League. Ever since, I have been a pussy cat lover.

        Yep, happens to everyone. As soon as you feel good enough to go 100%, something else breaks.

        Boooo!!!!

        I was pulling your tail.

        But, it’s true.

        I’ve been keeping up with my workouts, 3 or 4 during the week, at least one long hike with the dogs on the weekend….shorter hikes after work during the week….and at least once a week, usually more often, I will have some random injury/pain/ache develop…and it usually isn’t even while being active, just some random time at work or first think in the morning.

    MLB should suspend Jeets for some reason until 2015 along with A-Roid so that they both can come back healthy and the Yanks can save some $$$$
