Jeter Leaves Game With Strained Quad

Anthony DiComo/Yankees.com:

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left Monday night's game against the Rays after two innings with a strained left quad.

Jeter grounded into a fielder's choice in his only at-bat in the first inning, reaching base on a close play at the bag. He scored moments later on Bobby Abreu's two-run home run.

Jeter returned to the field in the second inning, recording an assist on a groundout to short, yet he didn't join his teammates when they took the field in the top of the third. Wilson Betemit moved from first base to shortstop to accommodate Jeter's departure, and Morgan Ensberg entered the game to take Betemit's place at first.

Jeter was batting .208 with three runs scored, having started at shortstop in each of the team's first seven games.
