Yankees' Jeter remains out with stiff left calf

  • Follow Baseball

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter remained out of the lineup Tuesday because he’s still bothered by a calf injury.

Jeter was not in the posted lineup for the game against Pittsburgh and was not on the travel roster for today’s game with Tampa Bay because of stiffness in his left calf.

New York manager Joe Girardi said the Yankees’ captain also will miss Thursday night’s game against Boston in Fort Myers.

“Today he said he didn’t feel it,” Girardi said. “There’s no rush. Hopefully we’ll get him in there Friday. I don’t want it to be an issue.”

The Yankees originally thought Jeter, who hasn’t played since last Wednesday, could return to play the Pirates. Jeter spent time on the disabled list last season with a right calf injury.

TIGERS: Third baseman Miguel Cabrera will miss at least a week after being struck in the right eye by a hard grounder on Monday.

Cabrera received eight stitches, but Tigers President and general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that Cabrera’s vision is “perfect” and he won’t go on the disabled list.

Cabrera said he’s not in pain, and expects to be ready on Opening Day.

PHILLIES: Infielder Michael Martinez broke a bone in his right foot when he was hit by a pitch from reliever Jim Johnson in the Phillies’ win over Baltimore.

There is no immediate timetable on Martinez’s return.

RANGERS: Derek Holland wanted to ensure his long-term future with the team, so he agreed to a $28.5 million, five-year contract rather than wait to become a free agent.

Holland was 16-5 last season and is 3-0 with a 3.82 ERA in 12 postseason appearances during the past two years.
