Update: CT scan on Jeter’s ankle comes back cleanBy
5:47pm: The CT scan came back clean, but the results will be sent to Dr. Anderson in North Carolina for further review. He performed Jeter’s surgery in October.
5:04pm: Jeter is being sent for a precautionary CT scan, Brian Cashman confirmed. “He’s been through a lot this year … We’re just going to take a look under the hood,” said the GM.
4:43pm: Joe Girardi said he removed Jeter from the game because he “didn’t like the way he was running … there’s some concern on my part.” It’s unclear if Jeter will go for an MRI or be available tomorrow.
4:29pm: Via Ken Rosenthal: Derek Jeter left this afternoon’s game due to an issue with or near his surgically repaired left ankle. Replays showed the Cap’n stumble a bit fielding a ball in the hole in the sixth. He stayed in the game to finish the inning defensively and bat in the following inning before being lifted for a pinch-runner. No word on the nature or seriousness of the injury, so stay tuned.
