Here's some more news on the injury front via CBS New York:Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he’s been cleared to start baseball activity in his recovery from a broken left ankle. The 38-year-old team captain reiterated Wednesday that he is on track to be in New York’s starting lineup for the opener on April 1. Jeter won’t take the field for workouts until later this month. The 13-time All-Star said that is his normal pre-spring training routine. “I’ve got the OK to start,” Jeter said before a launch party for his Turn 2 Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. “But I don’t start until next week or the week after, anyway. In terms of baseball activity, I’m right where I need to be.” Jeter broke his ankle lunging for a grounder in Game 1 of the AL championship series against Detroit on Oct. 13. He had surgery a week later and the Yankees said recovery time would be four to five months. “Great … the leg is good,” Jeter said.Jeter was also asked about the Yankees advanced age and had this to say:Why would we be too old? Too old, or experienced? Which word do you want to use?” Jeter said. “I’ll go into the spring and see who’s there. We’re always full of surprises. You never know what’s going to happen. We’ll see when we get there how the team looks. It’s a long season. I’m pretty sure we’re going to be competitive and be right where we need to be.”Jeter is a bit more confident than I am.
