Ouch you know that has to hurt. Both Derek Jeter and the Yankees were counting on a return of the captain more sooner than later. Now both have to live with much later than expected. Jeter will be out with his troublesome ankle until after the all star break.
Jeter, 38, is recovering from a broken ankle suffered in last year’s ALCS. Now doctors have discovered a small crack in the area of his previous injury. It’s another setback for the Yankees captain, who was previously expected to return around May 1.
If you are Brian Cashman you have to begin to wonder where to get a player to hold the position until Jeter returns. Cashman’s comments were as follows:This is obviously a setback. In terms of speculating when we might see Derek back with us, you’d be looking at sometime after the All-Star break.” He is obviously the toughest one we’ve ever had. You know when Derek Jeter continues to have issues that don’t go away, you know that means more than just your typical something.”
Consider this more bad news for a Yankees team that’s already without Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. Teixeira, however, was recently cleared to start swinging a bat. The Yankees and Granderson are unsure about his timetable. A-Rod is due back around the All-Star break as well. Despite their injury woes, the Yankees are 8-5, good enough for second in a competitive American League East.
Right now Jayson Nix and Eduardo Nunez are playing in Jeter’s absence, but they are not Jeter. Cashman can’t be feeling good about their play so far. But for now they are the answers that the Yankees have at this point, unless someone becomes available that can serve as an upgrade at the position until such time when or if Derek Jeter returns.

Alex Rodrgiuez is a strange individual. At least, that’s how we see him from the prizm of our TV sets, computer monitors, and other forms of media.

He reportedly had a centaur of himself in his home, he allows odd photographs to be taken, he allegedly had clubhouse...
