Derek Jeter placed on 15 day DL

The New York Yankees announced on Friday that they were placing captain Derek Jeter back on the disabled list with a strained right quad.

Jeter injured the quad in a July 11th game against the Kansas City Royals while trying to run out a ground ball.  Jeter, who missed the first 91 games of the season due to a twice fractured left ankle, went 1 for 4 in his only game back in pinstripes.

Eduardo Nunez, who also recently returned from the disabled list, will replace Jeter at Shortstop until he is eligible to return to the team on July 27th.

The Yankees enter Friday in fourth place in the AL East, six games behind the Boston Red Sox.  The teams begin a three-game series at Fenway Park on Friday night.
