Derek Jeter to play two games in Trenton this weekend

6/30/11, "Derek Jeter will play in two rehab games in Trenton this weekend before rejoining the Yankees on Monday in Cleveland in his run for 3,000 hits.

“I feel good now,” Jeter told reporters after working out at the Yankees’ minor-league complex in Tampa, Fla. “I’m ready to get out of here.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed Jeter’s plans after today’s 5-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Jeter remains six hits shy of becoming the 28th player in major-league history to reach 3,000. A strained right calf June 13 landed him on the disabled list.

His two games with the Double-A Thunder (Saturday and Sunday) will come while the Yankees play the Mets on Saturday and Sunday. The Yankees then play three games against the Indians before returning to the Bronx on July 7 for a four-game series against the Rays — an opportune time for Jeter to reach the milestone."...
