New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was put back on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with a Grade 1 strain of his right calf.
Jeter, 39, has played in only five games this season because of a fractured rght ankle, a quad strain and a calf injury.
"It's been terrible," Jeter said on Sunday. "It's been like a nightmare. The whole season has been a nightmare. I wish that wasn't the case and we were sitting here talking about something besides another injury. We'll see what happens. I have no idea."
Jeter is hitting .211 with one home run and two RBIs. He said Sunday the injury has been impacting his play.
"It feels like you were hit with a ball or something," he said, according to "It's like a deep bruise, maybe. That's the best way to put it. I don't know how else to describe it."
In 2011, he missed three weeks with a calf injury prior to picking up his 3,000th career hit. The Yankees also designated utility player Brent Lillibridge for assignment and called up infielder David Adams.
