NEW YORK (AP) -Derek Jeter was in the New York Yankees' lineup Wednesday against Baltimore, one night after getting hit on the left hand by a pitch.
``I'm fine,'' Jeter said. ``Definitely good.''
The star shortstop left Tuesday night's 12-2 loss to the Orioles in the third inning when he was plunked by right-hander Daniel Cabrera. X-rays were negative, and Jeter was considered day to day with a bruised hand.
``I feared the worst when he got hit last night because it was a loud noise,'' Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. ``We were fortunate.''
Jeter was penciled in to play shortstop and bat second Wednesday against Baltimore lefty Garrett Olson.
``I'll watch him in BP to see if he's favoring anything,'' Girardi said, ``but I don't expect to see anything.''
