Jeter has six games remaining before the All-Star break to reach the 3,000-hit mark. After two more games in Cleveland, the Yankees open a four-game homestand at Yankee Stadium against the Rays on Thursday, leading into the break.
“It feels good to be back,” Jeter said. “I don’t like to miss games, period, so to be out for three weeks — it’s tough to be away, because you want to be out there playing. In retrospect, it probably was the best thing to do."
Jeter is now hitting .256 for the season.
