Update: Jeter day-to-day with mild left ankle inflammationBy
6:26pm: The Yankees announced that Jeter has been diagnosed with mild inflammation in the ankle after a precautionary MRI and is day-to-day. X-rays came back clean.
4:24pm: The Yankees have sent Jeter to the doctor for what Girardi called “precautionary” reasons. No word on whether they did any tests, stuff like that.
11:45am: Derek Jeter has been scratched from this afternoon’s game with what Joe Girardi called a “cranky” ankle. The Cap’n felt some stiffness in his surgically-repaired ankle during batting practice and they yanked him from the lineup. He was slated to play shortstop. Girardi said they’ll proceed day by day right now. I’m honestly surprised it took this long for something like this to happen.
