With just a week of games in his pocket since the 3000 hit frenzy, New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter got hit in the hand by a pitch causing him to exit in the fourth inning of Sunday’s 4-2 win against the Baltimore Orioles.

Following the Yankees third win in a row; the New York Post reported that x-rays determined Jeter’s right middle finger is not broken, and that the injury is not serious.

Skipper Joe Girardi told ESPN New York that doesn’t expect this injury to sideline Jeter for a week, but maybe for a day or two during the team’s seven-game road trip.

Jeter is now listed as Day-To-Day.

Over his last 10 games, Jeter has 11 RBIs, one homer, five walks and two steals in 39 at-bats.
