Yankees Shut Down Jeter With Tender Calf

"When Joe Girardi answered a call from trainer Steve Donohue late Thursday afternoon on the bus and was informed that Derek Jeter's left calf was tender following a workout, the manager immediately knew what to do.

"I remember what happened last year, even though it's different calf, so I am being cautious," Girardi said about shutting down the shortstop.

Girardi said it's possible that Jeter won't play until Tuesday, the day after a dark day on the schedule. Jeter went through a complete workout at George M. Steinbrenner Field Thursday. Jeter, 37, missed two weeks with a right calf problem last year. It turned into a blessing because Jeter went to the minor league complex and worked on his swing. He was hitting .260 when he went on the DL June 14. After coming back on July 4, Jeter hit .331 the rest of the season.

Jeter wasn't alone on Girardi's injury update."
