4:22pm: A CT scan revealed a small crack in the area of the previous break, according to Brian Cashman. “We’re looking at sometime after the All-Star break,” said the GM. Jeter had been having more trouble with the ankle recently, but he doesn’t need surgery. Just rest.
4:06pm: Derek Jeter made an unscheduled visit to see Dr. Anderson in Charlotte following yesterday’s workout, Joe Girardi confirmed. He wouldn’t elaborate, only saying “put two and two together.” Brian Cashman will discuss the situation shortly.
Jeter, 38, did not workout last weekend and recently had his baseball activities scaled back. Sure sounds like he had another setback of some sorts, but maybe it’s just something minor and he’ll be back on the field in a few days. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, ankle injuries are never easy. Based on yesterday’s poll, RAB readers expected Jeter to return to the team in no fewer than four weeks.
