New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been diagnosed with a right calf strain and may require another stint the on disabled list.
An MRI was performed on Saturday where a Grade 1 calf strain was revealed.
The Yankees have not made a decision on whether Jeter, 39, is headed back to the disabled list.
“It feels like you were hit with a ball or something,” he said. “It’s like a deep bruise, maybe. That’s the best way to put it. I don’t know how else to describe it.”
The Yankees are 9 1/2 games behind the division leading Boston Red Sox . As for retuning to the disabled list, “I’ll see what they say,” Jeter said. “It’s up to them. Of course, I’d like to not do it, but I understand any situation that they have.”
