(NEW YORK) — The New York Yankees placed shortstop Derek Jeter on the disabled list, retroactive to July 12, with a strained right quad on Friday.
Jeter injured the quad while running out a ground ball against the Royals on July 11.
The Captain’s latest injury marks the latest setback in his recovery, after he missed 91 games due to a fractured left ankle.
“It’s frustrating. I don’t know what else you want me to say,” Jeter said in a statement a day after the injury. “I worked hard to get to the point of rejoining the team yesterday. It’s not how you draw it up, but hopefully I’ll be back out there soon and help this team win some games.”
Jeter’s injury marks the latest setback in his recovery, after he missed 91 games due to a fractured left ankle.
Eduardo Nunez is expected to take Jeter’s spot while he recovers. He’s batting .215 with 8 RBI’s this season and has a .285 on-base percentage.
