Maybe the Yankees were thinking of waiting a couple of more days to see how Derek Jeter‘s injured calf would respond, but that would have required cutting an infielder to make room for the returning Alex Rodriguez on Monday. Instead, they chose the prudent course and placed Jeter on the disabled list for the third time this season.
Jeter, who suffered a fractured ankle in the postseason last year, first strained his right calf in his 2013 debut on July 11. He rejoined the Yankees lineup on July 28, but he lasted just four more games before going down again. He’s gone 5-for-19 with a homer and two walks in his five appearances for the Yankees this season.
Update: The Yankees have also designated Brent Lillibridge for assignment, clearing a 40-man roster spot for Rodriguez, and recalled infielder David Adams.
