Jeter, Colon, Chavez continue rehab in Tampa

By

Derek Jeter, Bartolo Colon, and Eric Chavez are continuing to progress in the rehab for their various injuries down in Tampa. Jeter threw for the third straight day but has not been cleared to start running, which is what really matters when it comes to his calf issue. He’s expected to increase his workouts in the coming days. Colon was able to run sprints in the outfield for the first time since injuring his hamstring, and he has continued to play long toss as well. He’s scheduled for a bullpen session tomorrow. Chavez ran the bases for the first time today, going from home to first about a half-dozen times today. He’s been hitting for a while now, but this is the first time he’s run on anything more than a treadmill. Great news for all three but especially for Colon and Chavez, who have started testing their leg/foot injuries.

    Good news.

    So the Yanks might get for the stretch run:

    1. Top flight set-up man.
    2. Starting caliber SS
    3. Two starting pitchers
    4. Quality lefty bat off the bench/utility infielder
    5. LOOGY

    All without giving up a single player.

    Once all of the guys get back from their injuries, this team will look real good ( unless they suck when they return).

    Colon running sprints? He is more than ready

    Colon and Sprints…in the same sentence???

  5. the tenth inning stretch says:

    Tomorrow’s headline:

    “Yanks’ Colon running.”

  6. Jerome S. says:

    Should set us up for some sweeps of the Red Sox later in the season, no?

  7. ND Mike says:

    Did anyone get any footage of Colon “sprinting”? I’ll have to see it to believe it.
