      Yanks win in Jeter's return, but Yankee captain leaves early with quad injury

      NEW YORK - Derek Jeter returned to the New York Yankees for the first time this season, then left early Thursday because of a tight right quadriceps.

      Yankees manager Joe Girardi says Jeter will be sent for a test. Girardi says Jeter thinks he'll be ready to play Friday night.

      Jeter says he doesn't think the injury came from pushing too hard in his season debut.

      Jeter went 1 for 4, scoring a run and driving one in during Thursday's 8-4 win over Kansas City. He left for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

      The 39-year-old team captain had not played in the majors this season since breaking his left ankle in the playoffs last October.
