NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees have placed Derek Jeter on the 15-day disabled list with a right quad strain sustained in his first game back with the team last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle.
The Yankees made the announcement Friday before the team opened the second half of the season against the Red Sox in Boston. The 39-year-old shortstop singled on his first pitch in a major league game this year as the Yankees beat Kansas City on July 11, but he left in the eighth inning when his quad tightened.
At the time, Jeter said he hoped the strain was ``not a big deal.''
The Yankees also signed infielder Brent Lillibridge from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
