Jeter healing as expected, will shed boot in 6-7 weeks


During an appearance on The Michael Kay Show, Derek Jeter confirmed his surgically repaired left ankle is healing as expected. He will remain in his walking boot for another 6-7 weeks and unsurprisingly, the Cap’n expects to be ready in time for Spring Training. Whether that actually happens is another matter entirely. There’s still a long way to go in the rehab process and older players aren’t exactly swift healers. Either way, so far so good.

    It’ll be nice to not have to worry about the captain.

      Seriously. I’m officially in chicken little mode now after the announcement of the A-Rod surgery, and the capt’n being ready for opening day would be a huge relief.

  2. Cris Pengiucci says:

    Will he shed punds along with the boot?

  3. King of Fruitless Hypotheticals says:

    How come they don’t have these guys in hyberbaric chambers three-four days a week?

  4. I Collect Brett Gardner Cards says:

    Concerning derek and moving to third..
    …Cashman said that wasn’t going to happen, now do you guys think that is because Jeter wouldn’t/doesn’t want to, or because Cashman doesn’t want to do that?

    interesting – i didnt hear the interview – but Mr. Private goes on the record with a bought-and-paid puff-interviewer the same week his image takes a hit?

    i wonder if he was pluging anything, or if it was just a CYA

    • Robinson Tilapia says:

      How did his image take a hit? The guy wasn’t supposed to move for several weeks. He’s human. Cut him a break.

      The day Derek Jeter shows up to work out of shape is the day it’s fair to say his image or work ethic takes a hit.

    • RetroRob says:

      What interview? One news outlet took a photo of him last week that made him look heavy. Another news outlet this week has a photo of him showing it was all nonsense.

  6. Jersey Joe says:

    Hmmm…I still think we need Drew.

  7. Monterowasdinero says:

    Hurry back Jeets! You may hit the most HR’s from the right side of any hitter in our lineup in 2013.

    Depressing and scary thought….
