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.
