KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 8 (UPI) -- New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is out for at least one game with a quad strain.

Jeter left Monday's game with Tampa Bay after beating out a close play to reach first base on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the first inning, then scored on Bobby Abreu's two-run home run. He left the game, which the Yankees won 6-1, after the second inning.

An MRI taken during the game did not show anything other than a strain, which Jeter said he suffered Sunday afternoon.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the 33-year-old Jeter will not be in the lineup when New York faces the Royals Tuesday, and his status is uncertain for the rest of the week.
