Boland: Jeter resumes baseball workouts in Tampa


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.

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

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

      No way your head isn’t up your ass.

    • Cris Pengiucci says:

      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 says:

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

    • MannyGeee says:

      …. 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.

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

  4. Buddy says:

    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”?
