Jeter suffered the injury on July 11, in what was his first game of the season, trying to run out a ground ball against the Kansas City Royals. His move to the disabled list is retroactive to July 12.
The 39-year-old shortstop had previously been sidelined all season while recovering from a broken ankle suffered during the 2012 MLB playoffs.
Jeter's spot in the lineup will be taken by infielder Brent Lillibridge, who was promoted from the Yankees Triple-A farm club Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
