NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter was not going to take it easy, not after spending 91 agonizing games sidelined with a broken ankle. Thats not Jeter. At 39 years old, the New York Yankees captain might not have been ready to return to the team at his desired level of play. In his first game this season, Jeter strained his right quadriceps in his third at-bat Thursday. He will miss the weekend series against Minnesota, and New York wont rule out a return to the disabled list. "Its frustrating. I dont know what else you want me to say," Jeter said in a statement Friday. "I worked hard to get to the point of rejoining the team yesterday. Its not how you draw it up, but hopefully Ill be back out there soon and help this team win some games." After just four rehabilitation games, the Yankees pushed up the star shortstops return one day after Brett Gardner and Travis Hafner got hurt Wednesday night. Jeter had been telling the team he was ready to return, and general manager Brian Cashman said reports from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre were positive. So Jeter returned to a huge ovation and beat out an infield hit in his first at-bat. He also scored a run and had an RBI on a groundout that ended in a close play at first. He was pinch hit for in the eighth inning. "The way the game unraveled in his first two at-bats, they were go getem situations, and Dereks going to do everything he can to succeed, and his body said not yet," Cashman said. "Is that because of his age or more so maybe what hes coming back from? ... Its hard to say." Either way, Jeter is out again. An MRI showed a grade one strain. Jeter, of course, was against going straight to the disabled list. The plan is to keep the shortstop out for the three-game series against the Twins, and then he will have four days for the All-Star break to receive further treatment before the Yankees reevaluate. After the break, they start a series at Boston on July 19. "Well have to give it some time and see how he responds," said Cashman, who added that Jeters ankle is fine. Cashman wouldnt blame age as a factor for Jeters latest injury: "I dont want to say its Father Time knocking on his door." But manager Joe Girardi was realistic about how he uses the Yankees career hits leader. "I dont think its a guy that you can run out there 40, 50 days in a row like you used to," Girardi said. "Youre going to have to manage that." In a season full of makeshift lineups because of absent former All-Stars, the Yankees appear to have been snakebit twice. Call it DL 2.0. Jeter joins Mark Teixeira (wrist surgery), outfielder Curtis Granderson (broken pinkie) and catcher Francisco Cervelli (broken hand), who have been hurt and then had setbacks or second injuries. Teixeira returned briefly before season-ending surgery. Cervelli developed a stress reaction and is shut down for now. Granderson, who broke his forearm in his first at-bat in spring training only to be hit again after eight games back, was just cleared Thursday to take dry swings, Cashman said. Alex Rodriguez (hip surgery) was due to play seven innings for Class-A Tampa on Friday night, but the game was rained out. He is just 2 for 15 in his rehab assignment with one RBI. Cashman was eager to get his stars back but with all the setbacks and uncertainty, he can expect to explore trades as the July 31 deadline approaches. "When theyre healthy theyre getting plugged in," Cashman said. "And well be willing to sink or swim with them but dont misunderstand that were not going to try to reinforce other aspects when we can, if we can. But we really do look forward to getting those guys back." Either way, Girardi thinks the team, which is 50-42 despite all the injuries, will do just fine. "This group has been pretty good about moving on," he said. NOTE: The Yankees completed a contract with their third first-round draft pick, Aaron Judge, No. 32 overall for $1.8 million.

However, coach Julen Lopetegui tried to play down the expectations as his team prepared for its first match on Friday against the United States. He said his concern is getting past an American team that he praised for its tactics and physical style of play. "We are only thinking about the next match," Lopetegui said. "The history or the future, we cant think about this. Our concentration is on tomorrow no more." Billed as a tournament where future stars often emerge — after Diego Maradona starred in 1979, Luis Figo in 1991 and Lionel Messi in 2005 - it comprises six groups of four teams. The top two and the four best third-place teams advance to a knockout stage that begins July 2. Group A is seen as the toughest, since it features Spain, the U.S., France and Ghana, all of which are capable of going far in the tournament. Other teams tipped for the latter stages include Asian champion South Korea in Group B, South American champion Colombia in Group C and CONCACAF champion Mexico, which beat the U.S. in qualifying, in Group D. African champion Egypt is another candidate, from Group E. Security has been stepped up at all seven sites following weeks of sometimes violent protests after riot police brutally cracked down on environmental activists who opposed plans to remove trees and develop Gezi Park in Istanbul. But the protests this week have given way to peaceful resistance and so far the protesters have not targeted the tournament. Lopetegui said his team would bring Spains trademark "tiki taka" style of short passes and controlled possession, which helped its Under-21s beat Italy earlier this week in the European Championship final. The senior side has used it to win the 2010 World Cup and two consecutive European championships, and is also a favourite to win the Confederations Cup which is underway in Brazil. Spains Under-20s will be brimming with confidence, having beaten another tournament contender Paraguay 3-1 in a warm-up after winning the Under-19 European championship. The team features Oliver who has been compared to Xavi Hernandez, as well as scoring threats Gerard Deulofeu and Jese Rodriguez — who was the top scorer at the Under-19 championship. "The objective is to win, like every goal you set yourself in life," said Oliver, who plays for Atletico Madrid.dddddddddddd "It goes without saying that well be taking it step by step, but were not frightened of anyone. Nor do we think were better than anyone. We are Spain and we need to go out and take the game to our rivals." The Americans understand they are the underdogs but welcome the opportunity to play one of the favourites early on. "Spain is sort setting the standard worldwide for soccer now," U.S. coach Tab Ramos said. "Were not going to be the ones to solve that problem and counter what they have been doing. We dont just look at Spain. We look at our group. When we qualified for the World Cup, you are always hoping you can play some of the best teams in the world. We got an opportunity to play three of them in our group and we welcome that challenge." Ghana, one of three strong African teams along with Nigeria and Egypt, was on the same wavelength - particularly having won the tournament in 2009. "Its my wish to win the cup a second time," said Ghana coach Sellas Tetteh, who coached that 2009 side. "Sometimes it depends on what almighty God decides. We will work very hard to attain that. I wish over the grace of God that things work very well for us to lift the cup a second time." Brazil and Argentina — which have won eight out of the last 10 competitions — failed to qualify, leaving it to emerging power Colombia to try and earn South America another title. Colombia is looking for its first youth title and is well aware of the expectations back home. "It puts a lot of responsibility on you when people say youre favourites, but its out on the pitch where you have to show if its justified or not," coach Carlos Restrepo said, ahead of the teams opener against Australia on Saturday. England, meanwhile, will be looking to lift its fortunes when it opens against Iraq following a disappointing showing in the Under-21-European Championship. It was knocked out early, the latest setback for a youth program that has failed in past Under-20 World Cups. Its best finish was third, a decade ago. "My expectations and the first thing we are looking to do is qualify for the next stage," said Peter Taylor, who took over as coach following a stint with the Bahrain national team. "Iraq are a very positive side and look to be very good at set pieces so we will have to be aware of that." ' ' '
