Derek Jeter is out of the Yankees’ lineup for Game 1 of today’s doubleheader against the Orioles after being struck on the left elbow by a pitch last night.

X-rays taken last night came back negative, but manager Joe Girardi told Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York that “he’s sore … he was pretty sore last night, so I’m not sure what we’ll have.”

Jeter actually remained in the game after being plunked by Rays reliever Brad Boxberger. After today he’ll have just 16 regular season games remaining before retirement.

Brendan Ryan is starting at shortstop in Game 1.
