About this Article

Derek Jeter was back, and the New York Yankees felt a whole lot better. At least until he needed to make an early exit. The Yankees captain singled on his first pitch of the season, then was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning with a tight right quadriceps in an 8-4 victory Thursday over the Kansas City Royals."I hope it's not a big deal," Jeter said.
