After letting us twist in the wind for the majority of the day, Brian Cashman announced a little while ago that the MRI on Derek Jeter's right quad revealed a Grade I strain and that Jeter will remain out of the lineup through the ASB before being re-evaluated. There are no plans to put Jeter on the DL right now and the team is hopeful that a few extra days' rest will be enough to heal the strain and get Jeter back in the lineup.
All things considered, it's not the worst news in the world. In that it came in his first game and is a pretty sure sign that he's not 100% physically, it's still bad news. This is likely what we're going to see for the rest of the year with Jeter after the team scrapped his original rehab plan and rushed him back. Strains and tweaks and twinges and a lot of extra days off. I wouldn't be surprised if he did nothing by DH for the rest of the season when he is healthy enough to play.
IT IS HIGH! IT IS FAR! IT IS... caught.: "I knew that Scranton would play a role in all of this. I have booked a seat on the 8:20 p.m. Greyhound out of Durham. I arrive in Scranton at 2:20 p.m., tomorrow afternoon. There is free wifi on every Greyhound bus now, there are individual power outlets, and I am told that the legroom situation has improved significantly. I'm no prima donna, but comfort matters when you are tracking leads. Today is my sixteenth wedding anniversary, but I told my wife that this is important. This comes first. She didn't reply. I have budgeted one full day in Scranton before I take the Sunday night Greyhound to Tampa in order to track down Alphonso's and ALL CAPS's leads. I am on the Express Bus, and I will arrive two days later (just before noon on Tuesday). Not bad for $252 and only 3 transfers. Watch for regular updates from the road."
