Jeter scratched with right knee bruise

BALTIMORE – Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was scratched from the lineup for the second game of Sunday’s day-night doubleheader against the Orioles with a bruised right knee.

Jeter fouled a ball off his knee in a third-inning at-bat against Baltimore’s Zach Britton in the first game of the twinbill.

He was attended to on the field by head athletic trainer Gene Monahan and manager Joe Girardi, but stayed in the game, going 0-for-4 in New York’s 2-0 loss.

Jeter said between games that he expected to play, but was replaced by Eduardo Nunez at shortstop minutes before first pitch.

“I mean, it hurts,” Jeter said. “It’s really nothing.”
