Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Derek Jeter's season is over.

The Yankees placed the star shortstop on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, concerned about Jeter's surgically-repaired left ankle and the possibility he may be hurt further if he plays again this season.

"This is what's best for Derek," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said, according to MLB.com. "Something's going to give at some point the more we run him out there."

Jeter, 39, fractured his ankle in Game 1 of last year's ALCS and was limited to just 17 games this season, batting .190 with a .288 on-base percentage and one home run.

He was taken out of Saturday's game against the Red Sox after manager Joe Girardi said he "didn't like the way he was running" after hitting an RBI single. A preliminary CT scan came back negative.

The Yankees are in Baltimore for a four-game series with the Orioles.
