Derek Jeter likely to miss “several games” with bruised knee

Headline says it all, and what it doesn’t say Bob Nightengale of USA Today says:

The Yankees say that Jeter will miss tonight’s series finale against the Orioles, and hope to get him back at some point during the three-game Red Sox series beginning Tuesday at Fenway Park in Boston. The Yankees trail the Red Sox by two games in the AL East.

For his part, Joe Girardi suggests that Jeter may miss the whole Red Sox series. And Alex Rodriguez is already out with a bad thumb, so the left side of the infield is going to be pretty Nunez-riffic for the next several days.
