Yankees Captain Derek Jeter Returns to the Diamond
(NEW YORK) -- New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter went 1 for 4 with an RBI in his season debut Thursday as the Bronx Bombers (50-42) doubled up the Kansas City Royals (43-46), 8-4.
The 39-year-old Jeter was sidelined since last October, recovering from a fractured ankle he suffered during the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers.
In his first at-bat, the 13-time All-Star reached on an infield single off of Royals starting pitcher Ervin Santana. He would later collect his first RBI in the sixth when Luis Cruz scored on a groundout.
Jeter was removed for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning with a tight right quadriceps. He will undergo an MRI.
