JETER LEFT OUT OF YANKEES LINEUP VS. TIGERS
Thu, 05 May 2011 05:19 PM EDT

The news is that perennial shortstop Derek Jeter realized he is not in the Yankees’ lineup for Thursday’s series finale against the Tigers, and somehow it didn’t come as good news for him at all. Manager Joe Girardi said it had less to do with the hip injury that made him take Jeter off of Wednesday night’s game and more to do with giving his 36-year-old shortstop sporadic days off. Baseball scores.

“He was going to get a day off at some point during this long stretch,” Girardi said, “So I chose today.”

The Yankees are 12 games into a 16 consecutive game stretch and after Monday’s break they will play 16 more without taking any time to rest. With that said, Girardi gave both Jeter and Alex Rodriguez the day off versus the Tigers righty Rick Porcello.

The news were stunning to Jeter, who shook his head in what appeared to be repugnance when he arrived at the clubhouse Thursday morning to see his name removed from the lineup card. Jeter’s unhappiness grew by the fact that over the past few days, he started to swing the bat better. Baseball odds.

Although Jeter’s average is stinking and is still at .250, the fact the he has hit the ball accurately lately has offered encouragement that his bat might be on the edge of coming around.

Asked if he was “upset” not to be playing, Jeter said, “Upset? You mean like I want to fight somebody? No. I’m not happy, but I’m not upset about it.” Baseball spreads.
