New York superstar held back after a late complication.
New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter will sit out this weekend’s games after a thigh strain cut short his highly anticipated season debut.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said the 39-year-old shortstop would skip a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins with a right quadriceps strain.
He’ll have further time to recover during the break for Tuesday’s All-Star game and will be re-evaluated after that, Cashman said.
Jeter’s start as a designated hitter in Thursday’s 8-4 win over Kansas City was his first of the season.
He missed more than three months of the campaign recovering from a broken left ankle.
Jeter went 1-for-4 with a run batted in and a run scored before leaving the contest with tightness in his right quad.
