Derek Jeter needs MRI scan after New York Yankees return

Published 1 Comments

Derek Jeter is set for an MRI scan on his quad muscle after returning from injury for the New York Yankees on Thursday, according to reports.

The captain lasted just eight innings in his first game of the season, before being replaced by pinch-hitter Brett Gardner in the 8-4 win over the Kansas City Royals at Yankee Stadium.

Jeter has missed 91 games of the MLB season thus far with an ankle injury, which the 39-year-old picked up in the ALCS game one against the Detroit Tigers last year.

The future Hall-of-Famer was activated from the disabled list ahead of Thursday’s match-up with the Royals, but may have to return to that list after batting second in the line-up as the Yankees’ designated hitter.

However, a ray of light could be around the corner, with ESPN reporting that Jeter told manager Joe Girardi that he felt ‘well enough to play’ on Friday.

For the record, Jeter went 1-for-4 at bat on return, hitting a single in the first innings and scoring off a sacrifice fly from Vernon Wells.
