The Yankees captain was placed on the disabled list for a third time on Monday. This time Jeter was placed on a 15-day DL with a Grade 1 strain of his right calf.
The all-star athlete has only played five games this season because of recurring injuries.
“It’s been terrible,” Jeter said on Sunday. “It’s been like a nightmare. The whole season has been a nightmare. I wish that wasn’t the case and we were sitting here talking about something besides another injury. We’ll see what happens. I have no idea.”
Since his return from the first injury, Jeter is hitting .211 with one home run and two RBIs. He said the recurring injuries have been affecting his play.
“It feels like you were hit with a ball or something,” he said. “It’s like a deep bruise, maybe. That’s the best way to put it. I don’t know how else to describe it.”
