Yankees star Derek Jeter in 2013 debut pulls quadriceps muscle

There is no doubt the the New York Yankees have missed SS Derek Jeter and 3B Alex Rodriguez all season long.

Even without those two key players, the team has stayed in the American League East race which is basically wide-open for anyone to win.

That might be the reason they reinstated the 39-year-old Jeter to the active roster after a short stint in the minors.

The popular Jeter, spent just four games on his rehab assignment and was recalled to play Thursday against the Kansas City Royals.

It was his 2013 debut and the first first game he had played since last October 13 when he fractured his left ankle.

The long-time Yankees captain has another injury setback to deal with this time.

As the New York DH on Thursday, he ran out a ground ball during his third at bat in the fifth inning and will miss more action.

It was reported that Jeter suffered a Grade 1 strain of his right quadriceps muscle.

Jeter made a statement after the injury and is very diasppointed, obviously.

“It’s frustrating. I don’t know what else you want me to say. I worked hard to get to the point of rejoining the team yesterday. It’s not how you draw it up, but hopefully I’ll be back out there soon and help this team win some games.”

There is no timetable for his return to action.

Joe Maddon has always said that he likes managing the Tampa Bay Rays.

Apparently, the ownership likes him as well.

According to TV and Radio reports out of the Tampa/St. Petersburg area, Maddon and the team’s ownership have agreed on a three-year contract extension.

He has led the Tampa Bay to the playoffs in three of the past four years.

The Rays have a record of 495-477 under Maddon and have won two American League East titles and have played in the playoffs three years out of six in his regime. They advanced to the World Series in 2008.
