Derek Jeter to have ankle scanned and examined next week
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hasn’t played this season while recovering from two ankle fractures. Jeter said Thursday he hopes a CT scan and examination by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., next week will clear him to increase his level of baseball activities.
“I have no news, none. Can’t do anything different till I see the doctor, so there’s absolutely no news from me,” Jeter said. “I wish, but I got nothing. I mean, I wish I could do more, but I can’t until I go to the doctor.”
Jeter isn’t expected back in the Yankees lineup until mid-July after originally fracturing the ankle in last year’s American League Championship Series, then suffering another fracture during his rehabilitation in April.
The 13-time All-Star and Yankees captain had been rehabbing at Yankee Stadium but returned to the team’s minor league complex in Tampa, Fla. on Thursday.
