01:55 PM ET 07.22 | - Derek Jeter said he doesn't feel his quadriceps injury at all and he believes he could return by Saturday at home against the Tampa Rays. "Nothing," Jeter said when asked what he feels his injured thigh. "Is there anything better than nothing?" Jeter was in the batting cage on Sunday, tracking pitches. Jeter is not yet running, so manager Joe Girardi sounded a bit pessimistic that his veteran shortstop will be able to come back by next weekend. "I guess anything is possible," Girardi said. "I guess the biggest hurdle that he would have to clear is running. I wouldn't rule it out. I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent sure he will be able to come back [Saturday]."

i don't think the yankees would wanted a prolonged injuried wreck in JETER, a smart team would allowed their player to heal properly,,,,,

the yankees had have very little options,,,unless they sit down the rest of the season,and get prepare for the 2014 season,,,pitching,and hitting its a demand in yankees franchise,but we all know yankees lack in alot areas,,,,,

Absolutely (c'mon mods I used hyphens and asrerisks).

Sory can't play first base.

He should take the rest of the season off, he's not in shape and not ready for prime time, it's only going to get ugly!!!

Ryan Braun suspended for the remainder of the season. It's not long enough for me.

I liked the 100 game idea.

You may as well suspend 98% of the players and then the season would be over.

Major League Baseball is loaded with juicers.

Looks like Braun cut a deal to get it overwith. Since MIL is going nowhere - actually may be smart on his part.

Braun finally fessed up and now the pressure is on other players to do the same.

This has been going on for 20 years, at least.

Braun is just one of many players that use PEDS. Major League Baseball ignored this for years.
