Yankees vs. Tigers ALCS Game 2: Derek Jeter out of New York playoff lineup, first since 1995

Not only did the Yankees lose Game 1 of the American League Championship Series to the Detroit Tigers, they lost their captain to an ankle injury. Derek Jeter is out of the rest of the postseason after breaking his left ankle in the Yankees 6-4 loss to the Tigers on Saturday night. The last time the Yankees played a postseason game without Jeter was the 1995 ALDS.

Taking Jeter's place in the New York defense is Jayson Nix who will play shortstop and bat ninth. Ichiro will move up to fill the leadoff spot in the lineup during Jeter's absence.

Hiroki Kuroda will take the mound for the Yankees, looking to avoid a two-game deficit in the best-of-seven series. Anibal Sanchez will get the start for Detroit in Game 2. Full lineups are below.
