MLB notebook: Yankees place Jeter back on disabled list
• Derek Jeter is back on the disabled list. The Yankees placed their captain on the 15-day DL Friday. He strained his right quad in his first game back with New York last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle. The Yankees also signed infielder Brent Lillibridge from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
• Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey is going to the disabled list with a shoulder injury. The news then got worse. Manager John Farrell said Bailey has a “fairly significant” issue with his labrum and season-ending surgery is a “definite option.”
• The White Sox activated right-hander Jake Peavy from the disabled list, and he will start Saturday against the Braves. Peavy (rib) has been on the DL since June 6.
• Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, who suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by a batted ball in June, is set to begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
• All-Star right fielder Nelson Cruz is out of the Rangers' lineup because of a migraine headache.
• Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter, dealing with shoulder issues, will make a rehab start Saturday for Triple-A Memphis.
• Phillies right-handed reliever Mike Adams still feels discomfort in his pitching shoulder and might be headed for season-ending surgery.
• Police are investigating a burglary at the Atlanta home of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, The AP reported. Aaron and his wife were not at home at the time. Stolen was some jewelry and two of Aaron's BMWs.
