Derek Jeter injury: Yankees SS will not return Tuesday

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Girardi did not give a timetable for Jeter's return to the majors.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will not be activated off the disabled list Tuesday when he is first eligible to return, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

Jeter is recovering from a strained right calf. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Jeter has not run the bases yet and will need to run before he can participate in game action.

The shortstop is scheduled to play in a simulated game Monday at the Yankees complex in Tampa Bay. Girardi stated that Jeter will either play more simulated games in Tampa, or accept a minor-league rehab assignment for a few days before returning to the majors.

The Yankees travel to Tampa on Friday to start a three-game series against the Rays. Girardi doesn't plan on having Jeter return for the weekend series, telling Hoch:

"Well, he wouldn't have to go far. I guess that anything is possible, but until he's able to run freely, I don't think you can really put a date on it. And he hasn't done that yet."

Jeter has only appeared in five games this season, missing time earlier in the year with ankle and quad injuries.
