All-Star shortstop Derek Jeter left the New York Yankees' game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday with a bruised right foot.Jeter staggered away from the plate after Ricky Romero's pitch struck him on his right foot in the first inning 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 and made a terrific diving catch to take a hit away from Edwin Encarnacion in the fourth.The Yankees said X-rays on Jeter's foot were negative.
