Jeter hit in foot by pitch, replaced by Pena

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Yankees have lifted Derek Jeter from their game against the Toronto Blue Jays after the All-Star shortstop was struck on his right foot by a pitch in the first inning.

Jeter staggered away from the plate after Ricky Romero's pitch but opted to stay in after a visit from manager Joe Girardi and a trainer. He looked fine going from first to third on Johnny Damon's double and scored easily on Jorge Posada's grounder.

But Ramiro Pena replaced him before Toronto batted in the third. The Yankees didn't immediately announce a reason for Jeter's departure Wednesday.
