Boland: Jeter resumes baseball workouts in Tampa

Fan Confidence Poll: January 28th, 2013
Durability, old age, and the Yankees

Via Erik Boland & Sweeny Murti: Derek Jeter performed on-field baseball activities down in Tampa today for the first time since having ankle surgery in October. The Cap’n took swings in the cage and fielded a bunch of grounders (55 to be exact), typical offseason/rehab stuff. He did not run, however. Good news, obviously.

Durability, old age, and the Yankees
  • Drew

    The more important question is if Derek is in the greatest shape of his life.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      ….or how will be look from the $1500 seats.

      • jjyank

        Hey, at least that guy bitching about the content yesterday will be happy.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          This meme is backfiring.

          • jjyank

            Back to the drawing board!

      • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (formerly Manny’s BanWagon)

        They’re mostly empty anyway so as long as he looks thin from the bleachers, we’re OK.

        • Robinson Tilapia

          You mean from the executive buffet?

          • Andy Pettitte’s Fibula (formerly Manny’s BanWagon)

            If I were Jeter, I’d take the field the 1st day of ST in one of those inflatable Sumo wrestler costumes and take a few ground balls like that. It’d be hilarious.

            • Robinson Tilapia

              …and leave a small gift basket on second base.

              • Herby

                Only if you had Cano play second in a Geisha costume

        • trr

          LOL, Yes!

          • Magilla Gorilla Mama Called me Roy tho

            Collectively, you are the funniest people in the world.

    ……no way he goes the whole season without getting hurt…

    • nsalem

      No way your head isn’t up your ass.

    • Cris Pengiucci

      Based on what? His injury history? His age may contribute to something happening, but the guy has been on the field so much over the years, that I don’t expect him to miss significant time this season, uless there he has some fluke accident (like Pettitte did last season).

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Which would mean he’s as healthy as about 3/4 of the guys in baseball.

    • MannyGeee

      …. you could say about every sport player in the history of forever.

      Plot twist: Jeter gets hurt every season, as does every athlete. Just so happens to be small enough where you can play through it.

    • Jim Is Bored

      ellipsis…sentence fragment with no capital letters…ellipsis…


  • John C

    Damm! I was hoping to see some panic on here with the thought of Nunez opening up the season as the Shortstop.

  • Buddy

    This is the first and last place I come for Yankee news, but I don’t remember a “deader” time in the last 5 years regarding the Yankees.

    Am I just forgetting all the dead times in other off seasons? Or is this really “deader”?

    • LightSABR

      It sure feels deader. At this time last year, at least we had Pineda/Montero to debate until spring training. Now all there is to debate is whether the Yankees sitting on their hands means we’ll suck this season, which isn’t as fun.

      15 days….

      • John C

        It feels deader but at the same time exciting to see guys like Musteiller, Adams, ROmine and Mesa get a legitimate chance to make the Opening Day roster this year with the lack of depth
