History On Hold

I think I speak for every Yankee fan when I say, THIS SUCKS! Last night after getting 1 hit and knocking his countdown to 6, Jeter was pulled from the game with a grade 1 calf strain. Grade 1 strains are known as the least severe on a scale of 1-3.

A timetable is not yet known but rumors are swirling about a possible trip to the DL. If that is the case, the soonest the captain could be back is June 29th against Milwaukee. They are at home the 29th and the 30th. However, the following 3 games are played at Citi Field. It is likely that if this is the case, Jeter could get 3,000 in New York but not likely that it will be at home.

However, if Jeter only misses a couple of games, the chances of him reaching the milestone at home are likely gone. After this 3 game set with the Rangers, the Yanks will head to Chicago for a series with the Cubs and from there they will head to Cincinnati.

Derek Jeter will get his 3,000th hit, but some other group of fans will be present, not the Yankee Faithful.
