Yankees Spring Training, Derek Jeter Injury Update: Shortstop Out Tuesday, Wednesday

Derek Jeter won't return from a stiff left calf as quickly as the New York Yankees expected.

The star shortstop, who hasn't played since last Wednesday, was expected to be available Tuesday night during the Yankees' spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. But he is not penciled into the team's lineup for Tuesday night's game and is not on the travel roster for Wednesday's meeting with the Tampa Bay Rays either.

The Yankees seem to be handling Jeter's calf with care and patience, hoping that it won't bother him into the season like it did last year.

Catcher Russell Martin and outfielder Nick Swisher, who are both nursing groin injuries, are in Tuesday's lineup. Robinson Cano is also in the lineup after being hit by a pitch on Sunday.
