BRONX, NY – Derek Jeter is out of the New York Yankees’ lineup on Sunday with a tight quadriceps. This marks the second straight day where Jeter will be on the bench, though Saturday was billed as a scheduled day off for the 39-year-old shortstop that played just 17 games a year ago.

According to Girardi, Jeter’s quad first got tight during Friday’s game. However, The Yankees have not planned any tests on the injury and it is believed to be a minor issue. The Yankees manager noted that Jeter is “not real happy” about sitting for a second consecutive game, and could come off the bench in an emergency Sunday night.

If possible, Girardi would like to use the consecutive days out of the lineup and Monday’s off day to give his aging shortstop three full days to rest.

Girardi indicated that he feels “really good” about having Jeter in the lineup on Tuesday, when the team opens its series against the Chicago Cubs.
