Report: Derek Jeter has calf strain, calls season 'a nightmare'
The 39-year-old shortstop called the injury "frustrating" and described the 2013 season as a "nightmare." Jeter returned to the Yankees on July 11 after recovering from two separate ankle fractures in his left ankle but has been unable to play every day since returning from his first disabled list stint.
After missing the first 91 games of the season, Jeter returned to the disabled list after he strained his right quadriceps muscle on July 11. He returned from the injury on July 28 but complained of pain in his right calf the very next day.
Jeter has appeared in just five games this season, hitting one home run and driving in two runs.
Jeter commented on his injury-plagued 2013 season:
"It's frustrating," Jeter said after the Yankees lost 6-3 to San Diego. "It's terrible. The whole season has been a nightmare."
