Derek Jeter injury: Yankees shortstop leaves game

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hurt himself fielding a ground ball in the top of the twelfth inning and needed to be helped off the field.

Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta hit a grounder towards Jeter, who stumbled and fell to the ground as he fielded the ball. The New York captain could not stand to throw out Peralta, but rolled the ball over towards Robinson Cano to ensure the Tigers runners would not advance further. Jeter looked to be in noticeable pain and was unable to put any weight on his ankle while he was helped off the field.

The shortstop had been having problems with his ankle, as Joe Girardi put Jeter in the Designated Hitter spot in Game Four of the ALDS. Jeter was able to play Game 5 of the ALDS at short.

Jeter finishes his night 1-5 at the plate with a walk and two strikeouts. Jayson Nix replaced Derek in the lineup and at shortstop.
