Derek Jeter wore that bemused look before as he was peppered with questions about the heel injury that forced him out of yesterday’s game. He said it occurred as he tried to leg out and infield single.
Jeter said the heel felt “great” and that he wasn’t the one who decided he sat Saturday. “It’s entirely on him,” Jeter said, speaking about Joe Girardi.
Jeter was to be evaluated by the trainers this morning. Unless he hears something unusual from them, Girardi expects Jeter will be fine.
“I asked him how he felt (today) and he said he felt good,” Girardi said. “So he’s in there.”
