The Red Sox will not be facing Derek Jeter this weekend. The Yankees today placed him on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 12) with a right quadriceps strain.
The Yankees purchased the contract of Brent Lillibridge. A corresponding 40-man roster move will be announced later today.
Jeter, 39, was on the disabled list all season recovering from a fracture ankle. He was activated on July 11 and strained his quad in that game.
Lillibridge was one of the players the Red Sox obtained from the White Sox in the trade for Kevin Youkilis on June 24, 2012. He played only 10 games for the Red Sox before being traded to the Indians. He has since played for the Cubs and now the Yankees.
