Brian Cashman told reporters in Tampa that Derek Jeter received a cortisone shot for the mild inflammation in his left ankle today. He remains day-to-day, but Cashman acknowledged the Cap’n may have to start the season on the DL. Jeter needs to play a full nine-inning game at shortstop and play back-to-back days before being declared for regular season action. There are only 12 days left in Spring Training, so time is running out.
