Captain's Log: Jeter speaks about injury

In Captain's Log, we will detail Derek Jeter's season.

Derek Jeter addressed his calf injury and played down the severity of it. Here are the three main points:

1) Jeter said his calf first felt sore on Wednesday in Dunedin.

"It is really not that big of an issue, seriously" Jeter said.

2) Jeter said the injury he had last year impacted his decision to tell the team's trainers.

"The reason I'm probably not playing now is because I had one last year," Jeter said. "So that probably has something to do with it. If that wasn't the case, I'd probably would be playing."

3) Jeter said if it were the regular season instead of spring training, he would be playing.
