Jeter singles, draws two walks in second rehab game


4:34pm: Scratch that day off plan. Donnie Collins says Jeter will play shortstop for Triple-A Scranton tomorrow. Something tells me we’re going to see him before the All-Star break.

3:59pm: In his second minor league rehab game with Triple-A Scranton, Derek Jeter went 1-2 with two walks and a strikeout. He served as the DH and played the entire game. The single was a ground ball through the left side. Jeter will reportedly take Monday off before returning to the lineup as the shortstop on Tuesday, and he’ll presumably remain with Triple-A Scranton. The Yankees said they wanted to see him play back-to-back nine-inning games in the field before activating him before the setback, but who knows if that is still the plan.

    Could have used him up here today with the big league club at DH. I would bring these guys back after the ASB at Boston. No sense in rushing back to play KC and Minny.

  2. Kosmo says:

    Yanks are said to be scouting Ruiz and Young hopefully they can pull the trigger on a trade. NY needs a cleanup hitter in the worst way. Hafner is not cutting it. Hafner has only 1 million left on his contract so jettisoning him won´t be much of a financial loss.

    Jeter for the Boston series would be great.

  3. Capo says:

    That Boston series is going to be HUGE for the Yankees, and having Jeter and Rodriguez in the lineup would definitely change the tone of the lineup. Hopefully Clay ‘stickyfingers’ won’t be around, and the Yankees can have some actually significant right-handed batters in the lineup to have their way with Lester.

    Does this seem a tad aggressive for a guy who’s in his late-30s and already had a setback?

    • Laz says:

      He has already been out 8 months. You only get 20 days of minor league time, would assume he has done some work to get ready prior to this.

      • OhioYanks says:

        But it’s so much easier to just assume that they are a bunch of idiots who haven’t put any thought into it at all…

        • Steinbrenner's Ghost says:

          but emotion ofter overwhelms thought.

          Jeter’s emotion got the best of him by accelerating his efforts to return by opening day which produced another injury.

  5. Mickey Scheister says:

    How is Jeter so far ahead of A-Rod. Alex is saying he’ll need the full 20 days meanwhile el Capitan is pushing to get back before the ASB. Both serious injuries, but completely different approach to handling them.

    • OhioYanks says:

      Both completely different injuries. Even if they both had the same general injury on the exact same day there might have been varying levels of severity. In reality they had two totally different injuries.

    • Laz says:

      Jeter has been recovering since October, since January for A-rod. Sure I want A-rod back, but is there any point rushing him if he isn’t ready?

      • CS Yankee says:

        No, Jeter has been recovering since May when it was learned that had another break. So, Arod since January & Jeter since late-June (as that is when the boot came off).

        TheCaptain, FTW.

        • Evan3457 says:

          Letting a broken bone heal is somewhat more straightforward than recovery from major surgery on a joint.

          Jeter rushed the 1st time, and got another broken bone and another two months of DL time for his troubles.

        • jjsabo16 says:

          Jeter got at bats and played a little before re injuring his ankle so Arod waited 8 months to get real at bats, jeter didn’t.
