TORONTO — Derek Jeter has taken over sole possession of eighth place on baseball’s career hits list with a single in the fourth inning against the Blue Jays.

The veteran Yankees shortstop grounded a one-out hit into right field, chasing Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison.

It was the 3,320th hit of Jeter’s career, moving him past Hall of Famer Paul Molitor. Next on the list is Carl Yastrzemski, with 3,419.

One inning earlier, Jeter tied Molitor with a leadoff single, a line drive to right.

Jeter is batting .250 in what he has said will be his final season.

Notes

Yu Darvish pitched seven shutout innings in his season debut as the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0. Darvish struck out six. He got his 500th career strikeout, coming in 4012 / 3 innings, in the first inning. According to the Rangers, it is the fewest innings for a starter to reach 500 strikeouts in major-league history.

• The Boston Red Sox placed third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the disabled list with a right calf strain and called up infielder Brock Holt from Class AAA Pawtucket.

• Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig was not in the lineup against San Francisco because of a swollen left thumb. He left Dodger Stadium to get an MRI exam.

• Right-hander Jameson Taillon, 22, considered the Pittsburgh Pirates’ top pitching prospect, will have Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season and likely part of 2015.

• Unable to make a regular, comfortable throw to first, Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman was out of the lineup. An MRI on his right shoulder revealed inflammation but no “structural issues.” He will be reevaluated after Monday’s day off.
