The talk of the town recently in the MLB was the return of Derek Jeter to the New York Yankees, but it quickly turned to his most recent injury.

Jeter returned all right, but did not make it through his first game back after going down with an apparent quad injury.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today on Twitter says Jeter is out through the All Star break with what doctors are describing as a quad strain:



The good news is Jeter did not suffer a serious injury. The bad news is the team is not ruling out a trip to the disabled list, meaning he could be shelved for longer than the team would like. Oh, and he’ starting to develop a knack for getting injured, which is not a good sign for a player his age.

We’ll keep track of how Jeter’s recovery is going over the break, so stay tuned.
