Here's the good news:  Derek Jeter made his first appearance for the New York Yankees Thursday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals.

Jeter said he felt the quad tighten during his third at bat.  He also told manager Joe Girardi he felt well enough to play on Friday.

Jeter missed the first 91 games of the season recovering from a fractured left ankle.  He was only cleared to resume playing last week and played four games for the Yankees Triple A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes Barre.
