"He said he's fine," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "My guess is it's going to be a little sore, but he said he's fine."
Jeter went 1-for-4 with the hit-by-pitch and finished New York's seven-game road swing hitting 3-for-29 against Red Sox and Tigers pitching, snapping an 0-for-16 skid with his first-inning single off Verlander.
"All you can try to do really is just have good at-bats and hit the ball hard," Jeter said. "You'd love to get hits all the time. Today, I got a hit and I hit 10 balls [on the trip] harder than I've hit that one. Today, fortunately, I hit it in the right spot. I need to get on base a little bit more."
The captain has notched just five hits in his past 44 at-bats (.113), dropping his batting average to .269 with four homers and 22 RBIs heading into this weekend's series against the Twins.
"You can't expect a guy to get two hits every day," Girardi said. "It's just not going to happen. I haven't ever seen anyone get 324 hits in a season. You're going to go through periods where you get more hits than others. That's why you look at it over 600 at-bats."
