Derek Jeter was in the lineup at shortstop for the New York Yankees for the first time this season on Sunday.
Jeter missed the first 91 games of the season recovering from a twice-fractured ankle, only to suffer a strained quad in his first game back on July 11. He injured the quad running the bases while serving as designated hitter against the Kansas City Royals and landed back on the disabled list.
The Yankees entered Sunday 3-6 since the All-Star Break, and placed designated hitter Travis Hafner on the disabled list to create a roster spot for Jeter.
"We need contributions from a lot of people," said Jeter, who was inserted into the second spot in the lineup. "It is not like I'm some savior."
Hafner is hitting .205 with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs in 81 games.
